The shooting of Sivaji Productions’ Asal is going on in full swing in Chennai these days. A popular city studio was the venue a few days ago. A dance sequence is being filmed on the lead pair Ajith and Sameera. The dance director is none other than Bollywood biggie Ganesh Acharya.
But speak to actor and producer G Prabhu, who is also acting in the film and he reveals, “Ganesh Acharya and Raju Sundaram are the two choreographers for this film. When putting together the crew for this film I met Ganesh’s family personally in Mumbai and I discovered a sweet secret.
I was told that Ganesh Acharya at birth was named after my father Sivaji Ganesan because his father was a hardcore fan of the legendary the spian! So Sivaji Ganesan is his real name! But today he is known as Ganesh Acharya!”
Who would have dreamt that one day the very same Ganesh Acharya would be part of Sivaji Productions itself, linked to the legend his father was a huge fan of!
