Lead actors promoting their films together and going ga-ga over their latest on-screen pairing isn’t something new to the industry. Jiiva, whose latest film Pokkiri Raja released last Friday, has done just that.
Jiiva and Hansika have been paired opposite each other for the first time in the film directed by Ramprakash Rayappa. An event was held in Trichy on Sunday where the film’s crew presented new mopeds to 05 women to celebrate the film’s success. Jiiva, Hansika, Rayappa and other crew members took part in the event.
Speaking at the event, Jiiva said “Pokkiri Raja is a wholesome entertainer and I’m happy it has been doing well in theatres. Reason for using Rajini Sir’s old film as the title of this film is due to the paucity of titles in Tamil films of late. I love to star in breezy entertainers. I’m awaiting the release of 3 more films this year; all are typical commercial entertainers!”
He ascribed his youthful look to the food prepared earlier by his mother and now by his wife. “I can’t pin-point any particular heroine as my most favourite heroine but I feel my on-screen chemistry with Hansika has come out very well in Pokkiri Raja and as such, she is my most-matched pair,” he remarked.
He also denied that Sibiraj was not given prominence in the film’s publicity still and promotional events.
