“Though I revealed the storyline, the film will be interesting with twists and turns. Saamy is a film which lifted my career to a different level. Even before the release of Saamy, Vikram sir signed me for Arul. Later, we met several times but I couldn’t get a storyline which suits his ‘performer’ image. Vikram sir is not just a star, people want him to perform on the screen”, said Hari.
“Aishwarya Rajesh said that she plays a small role in the film but that’s not true. Her character has come out really well”, added Hari. In the film, Aishwarya replaces Trisha’s role. “Trisha’s performance in Saamy was magical but I don’t know whether I would be able to recreate it in Saamy Square but Hari and Vikram sir encouraged me”, said Aishwarya.
Speaking at the launch, Vikram said: “Aishwarya rightly said that Trisha created a magic in the film but you have your own identity as well. As an actress, Aishwarya Rajesh has reached a good position in the industry through her acting skills. In Dhruva Natchathiram too, she got a wonderful character. I couldn’t watch the Telugu version of Keerthy’s Nadigaiyar Thilagam but she has lived as Savithri. The similarity in the climax pics of her and Savithri was incredible. In fact, Keerthy and Savithri have many things in common. Keerthy has so many interests, she knows to play the violin, she is a swimming champion and she has sung a song ‘Metro Rail’ in Saamy Square”. The actor was also in full praise for Hari’s sincerity and how tirelessly he works to save the money of the producer.
“Shibu Thameens came in the right time and ensured Iru Mugan’s success at the box office. Shibu distributed Saamy in Kerala, happy that now he is producing Saamy Square”, said Vikram who also thanked Devi Sri Prasad for his positivity and genuine speech at the audio launch.
Devi Sri Prasad said “Once I read an interview of Vikram sir who dubbed for other actors in his struggling phase and dreamed himself to become an actor someday. His growth in this industry is just phenomenal and whenever I feel low, I would read that interview of Vikram sir. Director Hari knows exactly the length of background score and duration of the songs even while I compose. Keerthy was skeptical to sing for the film but she is indeed a great singer”.
“Whenever Vikram sir enters the sets, he would bring so much positivity to the team. For me, Vikram sir is like a teacher that guided me how to perform in certain scenes. Though I don’t have many scenes with Aishwarya and she declared herself as my fan after watching Mahanati, I became her fan since the Kaaka Muttai days. Devi Sri Prasad and I have given two blockbusters in Telugu, hoping to repeat the magic again here in Tamil”, said Keerthy.
Earlier, Ramesh Khanna said: “Vikram sir looks so young even after eighteen years of Saamy (first part) but in the film, I’ve been shown as an old man” and thus revealed that the young Vikram will be clashing with Perumal Pichai’s sons —OAK Sundar, Bobby Simha, and John Vijay.
OAK Sundar also said “Bobby Simha, John Vijay and I are three Khilladis in the film who would be fighting against Vikram” and revealed that he is one of the villains in the film.
Saamy Square is all set to release in the month of September.
