The launch of Shankar’s Anniyan was held today between 9.15 and 9.30 am. All the bigwigs of the industry attended the function at AVM studio in Chennai.
Vikram dressed in all black hugged Shankar after the pooja and said: "Anniyan will be one of the most important films in my career as I always dreamed to work with Shankar who is one of the finest directors."
Both Shankar and Vikram refused to talk anything about the film. Vairamuthu, who is trying to stage a comeback after he fell out with A.R.Rahman, said: "There are five songs in the film and all of them are fantastic. Harris Jayaraj is going to go places after Anniyan music is released."
The heroine Sada was missing, as she was busy shooting for a Telugu film in Pollachi.
The final word from Shankar: “I intend to finish the film in six months and probably release the film for Diwali."
However the absence of other stars in the industry at the function was noticed.
