Anjaan (aka) Anjan release expectation


Arguably, Suriya’s biggest release till date, Anjaan comes out this Independence Day. With a stellar cast, consisting of Suriya, Vidyut Jammwal, Samantha, Soori, Manoj Bajpai, Brahmanandham and others, Anjaan also has special performances from Chitrangadha Singh and Maryam Zakaria. 
Talking about being part of this commercial action entertainer, Vidyut Jamwal, in an interview with Behindwoods said, “I got a call from Lingusamy sir, inviting me for an audition for a part in Anjaan. It wasn't for a negative role, but a parallel lead character. I'm so glad it all worked out so well and I got a chance to work with a genius like him.” 
He also added, “I can't reveal much about Anjaan as yet but I can definitely tell you that I'm not the villain. Suriya and my character are partners in crime, brothers in arms. It’s a role I haven't done before and I'm really excited about it.”
Pointing out the highlights and her character description, Samantha said:
“The biggest strength would be Suriya as Raju Bhai. His looks alone will blow you away. That particular look is very difficult to carry and with ease, Suriya has done it.” 
“Generally, when actresses take up commercial films, we take it up knowing very well that it is not going to be our film. But I agreed to Anjaan because it was Lingusamy’s film. Look at all his movies. Heroines might not be present during the full run of the movie, but every one of them, from Run to Vettai, would have been registered (in the minds of people). I think he has done the exact same thing for Anjaan.” 
“I play a character called Jeeva and she provides light moments in this serious film.”
About her move to go ultra glamourous for ‘Ek Dho Theen’, Samantha reasons out, “I was being stereotyped as a girl next door and I wanted to prove a point that I am versatile. Hence, the glamour in Anjaan. I’ll go back to being myself after this.”
