With only four songs remaining to be shot for Modhi Vilayadu, it looks like director Saran is ready for his forthcoming film Asal with Ajith. In all probability, its shooting will begin in March.
Commenting on the title, Saran said that the screenplay he wrote for this film is completely different from that of Amarkalam or Kadhal Mannan or Attagasam, his previous films with Ajith; it is totally new and original and thus the name Asal (Original). Saran further added that he wrote this screenplay for the matured actor that Ajith is today. Seran also remarked that he has a clear understanding of what people expect from an Ajith film and added that this script will not disappoint them; instead, will take their expectations to a new level and pave the way for a new trend. Seran also revealed that he had reserved the title Asal for Ajith all these years.
Kadhal Mannan (1998), Amarkalam (1999) and Attagasam (2004) were huge hits, making the Ajith-Seran team a household name. Besides these films, Saran has also directed many super hits, including Parthen Rasithen, Gemini, Jay Jay, Vasool Raja MBBS and Vattaram. He holds a respectable position in Kollywood and is popularly referred to as a “minimum guarantee director”, as he has given only one flop so far in a career that is 10 years and 10 films old.
Modhi Vilayadu, which has upcoming stars Vinay and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, is Saran’s 11th film and has got all the elements to become a stupendous hit. After completing the talkie portion of the film effectively, Saran decided he needed to add attractive songs to the film to further enhance its appeal. Thus, he is engaged in the process of finding exotic locations in Finland, a rarely-seen country in Tamil films. This only testifies his eclectic taste and showmanship. The news is that he will also film a song in Dubai.
