Action King Arjun has officially launched the shoot of his Jai Hind 2, with an official press meet at a star hotel on Sunday (June 9) evening.
The traditional vilaku was lit by the guest of owner poet Vairamuthu and director KS Ravikumar in the presence of Arjun and his two heroines Surveen and Charlote.
Vairamuthu was all praise for Arjun and said he is one actor without any controversies and has survived at the top for 32 years. Said Vairamuthu : “ Arjun has done nearly 150 films and been there for 32 years while others have come and gone. It is a big achievement and has been a fabulous journey.”
KS Ravikumar said he knew Arjun before he entered cinema and has always admired his staying power and reach. Says Ravikumar: “Arjun is one actor who knows his plus and minuses well, which has helped him to stay grounded. He knows how to convert his minuses into pluses.”
Arjun is introducing a Bangalore based Tamil and popular Kannada music director Harikrishna to Tamil films with Jai Hind 2. He has two heroines Surveen Chawla and Charlotte, the Gladrags mega model of 2013. The cinematographer is Venugopal. Senthil and Telugu comedian Brahmanandam is doing the comedy track for the film.
Arjun concluded by saying: “Jai Hind 2 is dedicated to former Indian President Abdul Kalam and to the Indian media. The film deals with education system and its flaws. It will be made with all essential commercial ingredients.”
