The Goan-born Genelia De’Souza & Bollywood’s Hansika Motwani are the two heroines vying for attention in Vijay’s upcoming film titled ‘Velayudham’ which is being produced by Aascar Ravichandran, whose last film was the mega-budget ‘Dasavatharam’ more than a couple of years ago.
Unit sources reveal that the film could be the most significant one for Vijay as on date. The actor, who has had a string of flops in the past 2-3 years, is badly in need of a hit to sustain his status as a bankable star in the industry. Vijay is banking heavily on director ‘Jeyam’ Raja to deliver a hit, the same way Raja has done with his younger sibling ‘Jeyam’ Raja for the past few years.
Raja is quite aware of the dangers of directing two heroines simultaneously. It is said that he has scripted the story in such a manner as to give almost equal significance to the characters of both the heroines. This has resulted in one huge benefit, of course: both Genelia & Hansika have now become close pals, each helping the other with her sequences for the day.
The cooperation rendered by the leading ladies has kept Raja & Vijay in good humour. Raja assures confidently that the film is sure to hit the bull’s eye at the box-office and resurrect Vijay’s career in a big way!
Let’s wait to check his version!
