The team, which made “Chennai-600 028” a fine movie, is back in “Saroja”. Except for the producer, the same team is working together again,” says Venkat Prabhu who is in charge of the story, screenplay, dialogue and direction.

Four poor young men get into an extraordinary situation on an ordinary day and how they manage to come out of it is the story of “Saroja”. One of the main characters, Siva, is a television actor and he marries Kajal Agarwal. The wedding reception was shot at a mansion on East Coast Road, Chennai, earlier this month. The reception was literally star-studded. Prakashraj and Jayaram play important roles along with Siva, Vaibhav (son of director Kothandarami Reddy), Saran and Premji Ameran. Premji and Brahmanandam handle the comedy track. A highlight is a traffic jam scene filmed at a huge cost, using about 200 buses, Lorries and other vehicles. Yuvan Shankar Raja, who set the tunes for the songs, has taken 50 days for the background score. Five songs have been recorded, two of them are written by Gangai Ameran and three by Vaali. The film’s title role is essayed by Vega Timotia, a newcomer.
The film is being made in Telugu also. Disco Shanthi’s husband Srihari plays the role donned by Jayaram in Tamil. …
