Aishwarya, superstar Rajini’s elder daughter and wife of the national award-winning actor Dhanush, is on the move. She debuted as director in Kollywood with 3 early last year which had her husband romancing the stunning Shruti Haasan. Despite good reviews, the film’s showing at the box-office was far from encouraging.
After more than year, Aishwarya has now launched her second directorial venture with Vai Raja Vai which has Guatham Karthik and Priya Anand pairing up as on-screen pair. Yuvan Shankar Raja, who has just completed the milestone of scoring music for 100 films, is scoring the film’s music. It’s notable that Aishwarya has moved away from Anirudh, her relative and music director of 3 which had the Kolaveri number, and signed up Yuvan to score music for Vai Raja Vai.
Incidentally, the shoot commenced on the day which also turned out to be the 24th birthday of Gautham Karthik, the film’s hero. Among those who attended the film’s muhurat, held in a simple manner, were directors Bala, Vetrimaaran and Saravanan (of Engeyum Eppodhum fame).
Soon after the muhurat, sequences involving Gautham, Priya Anand, Vivek, director SM Vasanth and Sriranjani were filmed. The film is produced by AGS Entertainment.
