Director Mohan Raja and the entire team of Velaikkaran sounded confident about their film at the big fat audio launch held on Sunday at ITC Grand Chola, Chennai. “I saw Velaikkaran recently, it’s going to be a big hit worldwide with a raving response from people across the globe”, said director Raja’s dad and veteran editor Mohan.

“First of all, Velaikkaran is about dedicated workers around us so it’s not easy for the audience to troll the film. We have tried to raise questions people want to ask in Velaikkaran, it’s a film for the public, they will definitely relate to the core plot. Arivu (character of Sivakarthikeyan in the film ) will be remembered for a long time. No one, other than Sivakarthikeyan would’ve justified Arivu”, added Raja.

Raja also appreciated music composer Anirudh and called him a crowd puller. “Anirudh’s "Karthuvanellam Galeejam" itself is enough to bring audiences to theaters”, the director said. 

“It’s an emotional moment for me, I know Sivakarthikeyan for a long time and happy to see his growth. We have seen him as a happy-go-lucky guy in the past but in Velaikkaran, Siva proved that he can also effectively perform characters with substance. Velaikkaran is my fifth film with Siva, he shares one-third of my film music ", said Anirudh.

Anirudh also appreciated producer RD Raja for his thirst to produce good films. “I know RD Raja since Ethir Neechal times, his vision for film production is inspiring. Velaikkaran’s core idea is unique and new, proud to be a part of this film”, added Anirudh.

Anirudh also performed the songs of Velaikkaran at the grand event and fans went gaga over the rock-star’s energetic performance. The audio of the film was launched by passionate workers from different walks of life.
