Aascar Ravichandran has produced the film Velayudham at a cost of Rs 48 Crores. This film which has Vijay in the lead role has been directed by Jayam Raja. This film which is to be released on Deepavali has Genelia and Hansika in the female lead roles.
The shooting of this film took place for 150 days. Whe asked the director whether there were any ego problems between the two heroines, he said, “It is true that there was ego between Genelia and Hansika that who was the greatest. But both of them will not show it out. Both of them will smile when they meet face to face.
There will be stiff antagonism in their minds but outwardly they will move as if though they were close friends. But there were no problems because of them. Both of them have been given equivalent roles. Because of this the shooting took place peacefully. We shot the climax sequence in Cochin for 15 days. We required 1 Lakh people to participate in this. We were able to collect 50,000 people and the balances 50,000 were Vijay fans. This film will be the best for Vijay.”
