Director Siva has assured that his upcoming film Vivegam starring Ajith Kumar in the lead would be truly a ‘world-class’ film of international standards.
Touted as the most expensive film as on date in Ajith Kumar’s more than 2-decade long career, Vivegam has caught the attention of movie goers as well as Ajith’s ever-hungry fans ever since the film’s first-look posters showing Ajith shedding his paunch and looking battle-ready in a ripping six-pack abs look were released a few months back. The teaser and a ‘single-track’ album from the film have also been huge hits.
“Akshara Haasan plays a pivotal role in the film and the script revolves around her,” says Siva, who introduces Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter to Kollywood with Vivegam. “It’s a film with Indian sentiments but of international standards. Ajith plays an Interpol agent. Vivek Oberoi is not merely a menacing villain but also carries a powerful role on his shoulders. Kajal Aggarwal, Ajith’s heroine, plays an NRI in the film in a typical ‘homely’ girl’s get-up.
“The film has been shot entirely in Europe in Serbia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Austria. Ajith was required to commit himself 100% in the film but he gave more than that, hit the gym and turned up for the shoot with a six-pack abs look. The film would be very interesting to watch as we have taken the trouble of making every second interesting,” concludes Siva. Satyajyothi Films has produced the film.
