Director Saran is back in the game with Aayirathil Iruvar, which releases today. The film has Vinay in dual roles, with three new glamorous heroines for the company.
Saran regular Bharadwaj has scored the music, while Kabilan Vairamuthu, Vairamuthu and the director himself have written the lyrics for the songs.
Saran has the distinction of having worked with Thala Ajith in 4 films, over his career spanning 20 long years. In a recent interview, he fondly recollected his experiences with Thala,
“Ajith‘s growth has been achieved with random steps. It’s not a measured or planned graph. He has proved himself in all types of roles – chocolate boy, action hero, intense performer and as a mass commercial icon. When it comes to certain people, there is no particular reason as to why people like them so much. Ajith is one such star.
His way of living is also being seen as an example by the TN public. We’ve had great times working together in a friendly way. His growth is astounding and it’s not easy to achieve such a stature. His hard work, self confidence and the love of the audience have made him ‘Thala‘.”
