Director Vijay has openly conceded that it is always a tough (t)ask to make a trilingual film such as his Devi which hit the screens last Friday (07th October).
Starring Prabhu Deva, Tamannaah and Sonu Sood in lead roles, Devi released on the same day simultaneously in Telugu (as Abhinetri) and Hindi (Tutak Tutak Tutiya). Vijay directed the three versions of the film and shared his views on the making of the film. “I loved Prabhu Deva’s performance in the film and want to make many films with him in the lead.
“Devi was actually a heroine-oriented script but when Prabhu Deva entered the film, it became a normal film. Prabhu Deva keps himself very cool, jovial and cooperative during the shoot. I’m proud that I got to work with such a hero. It was, however, not an easy task to make a trilingual film simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
“Prabhu Deva and Tamannaah were fluent in all the three languages and I had no problems with them; however, other actors/actresses were not so and it was a huge task for me to make them utter dialogues in these languages. We put in hard-work for months together. The making of the film was possible only because of Prabhu Deva, Tamannaah and Sonu Sood’s (the producer) cooperation,” Vijay concludes.
