Velayudham is a fantasy film that would break all barriers and do well, says directorJayam Raja. Addressing media persons, he said, ‘ Vijay is a real mass hero, who has a strong screen presence. A pacy script with enough commercial elements for Vijaywould do wonders’.
‘Though he enjoys huge stardom, he is humble and down-to-earth. He knows his strength a lot. Vijay is a director’s actor’.
The movie has over 100 artistes and all is grand and glitzy in Velayudham. I thank producer Aascar Ravichandran for giving me enough liberty. The end product is very impressive and rich’. The movie has three leading ladies – Genelia, Hanshika Motwani and Saranya Mohan. They have equal screen space and there was healthy competition between them to give their best on screen, says Raja.
Queried whether Velayudham is a remake of Telugu hit Azad, Raja is quick to reply. He says, ‘It is not a remake. I have only taken the crux from the Telugu movie and worked on a crisp screenplay.’
