In almost all his films, director Cheran is conscious of music and songs. Whether he treats stronger or milder theme, his interest on songs bring his projects to the fore to some extent. Currently Cheran is involved in bringing out Vengayam to the screen. He is deeply engaged in promoting the film. He changed the title to Gayam and is making all out efforts to promote it to higher level.
In the meantime he means his business by announcing another project called Neon Nagaram. The title follows on the lines of Thoonga Nagaram about Madurai. Sources from Cheran indicate that this film is about a musical venture and is based on a novel by Paadhai of Chennai. Cheran said he would like to exhibit the musical plagiarism and its effect on the film industry. This came from the idea of high level remake of films and songs of old years. Many musicians of the industry are at the helm of devising their style for old classical songs which in the end get destroyed. So Cheran claims that stealing of tunes is more tolerable than remake.
Cast and the crew is yet to be decided as Cheran is just now relieved from the tussle of FEFSI and producers strike. On his affinity with director Ameer, he replied that all such disputes are off the screen and he has no comments.
