During the launch of Mariyadhai, the film’s hero Vijayakanth informed everyone that he agreed when director Vikram approached him for Mariyadhai for two reasons: first, they have already worked together and made a blockbuster – Vaanatthaipola and second, Vikram had written this story exclusively for Vijaykanth.
Mariyadhai was launched by producers council president K. Ramanarayanan and Pyramid Saimira Swaminathan on October 9th. Chief guests included Sun Pictures COO Mr. Saxena, Kalaipuli Dhanu, Khaja Moideen, Sivasakthi Pandian, Anbalaya Prabhakar, Ibrahim Rowthar, and young directors Ameer and Venkat Prabhu
Also present were the film’s heroines: Ambika, Meera Jasmine and Meena. But Ambika, who had lost a few pounds and looked as beautiful as she did during her halcyon days, was the cynosure of this function.
Director Vikraman, while speaking on the occasion, evinced confidence that Mariyadhai will win the President’s award just like his previous film with Vijaykanth (Vaanatthaipola) did.
