Tamil super star Surya and his brother Karthi started their production house called Studio Green.
Under the banner, they made films such as Awara, Yamudu and Naa Peru Siva.
All was going well for the brothers till a slew of flops followed.
Karthi’s movies Paruttuveeran, Sakuni and Bad Boys did not do well at the box office.
Due to this, the production house is in dire straits. Though Bad Boys was a flop in Tamil, the team tried to release the film with huge publicity in Telugu.
Unfortunately for them, it did not go as planned and the film flopped here too.
Then the production house got into distribution, but that too did not work for them.
Now, they have taken up the production of Yamudu 2 under the banner of Prince Pictures.
Though they have changed the name, the person who is supervising the production is KE Gnanavel Raja, who also is in charge of Studio Green.
Only time will tell if the name change will help them get a hit.
Hansika Motwani One-Take Artist!!!
Rarely does southern actress Hansika Motwani need a second take to perform a scene, says director Hari Gopalakrishnan who included her in the forthcoming Tamil action-drama “Singam 2“.
Hansika is one of the additions to the cast of “Singam 2”, a sequel to “Singam”.
“I included her in the sequel to play an important role. I haven’t worked with her before but have seen her performance in so many films. She is a one-take artist and rarely do you need spend few more takes to complete a scene with her,” Hari told IANS.
“If you show her exactly what you want, she will do it in no time. She brings in so much of energy to the team and that keeps us all going,” he added.
She joined 30 other artists in the sequel.
“Audiences are familiar with all the actors who appeared in the prequel, but I was hesitant to add a few more to the sequel. But, I don’t regret it now because everybody has done a brilliant job, especially Hansika,” he said.
“I was more worried if the audiences won’t connect with her character, but I’m confident now that they will enjoy her performance,” Hari added.
The film also features Suriya Sivakumar, Anushka Shetty, Nassar, Vijayakumar, Santhanam, Vivek ad Anjali.
He clarifies there may be a lot of characters, but each one has a purpose.
“All those who watched ‘Singam’ will know that I chose every character, big or small, for a reason. When people watch ‘Singam 2’, they will know why I included extra characters,” he said.
Produced by Prince Pictures, “Singam 2” has music by Devi Sri Prasad and is slated to release in June.
