Vishal met the media along with his director Prabhu Deva and heroine Sameera Reddy, to unveil details of his next film, Vedi, produced by his GK Film Corporation.
The film has music by Vijay Antony and camerawork by RD Rajsekar and both technicians were present for the meet. The film is set for release at the end of September and is the remake of the Telugu hit Sauryam.
“After Avan Ivan, my responsibility has increased to do good films,” said Vishal who claimed that this film was delayed due to the delay with Avan Ivan. “But it worked out for the best,” he added. Vivek teams up with Prabhu Deva, instead of his ususal Vadivelu.
“Its my first film with Vishal and we had a deal to finish it fast and that’s what we have done,” said Prabhu Deva who avoided any personal questions about his love life. “I thank Bala because Vishal has now been trained by him and I think this role was tailormade for him.”
Vedi is about a hero’s search for something. Prabhu Deva has not choreographed any songs in it. The old title of Prabhakaran had no other significance except that it was the name of the character, replied Vishal in answer to a question about the title change.
Vijay Antony was happy to be working with Vishal, who had been his classmate in Loyola college a decade ago. “He has changed so much. I was fascinated to see how many voice modulations he gave while dubbing for Vedi.”
There are five songs and no remixes according to Vijay Antony who revealed that there were three slow and two fast songs. Sameera Reddy expressed her happiness at finally having a tall hero whom she could look up to quite literally. The film has been shot in Chennai, Hydrabad, Kolkata and Thoothukudi. The audio is releasing on Sunday.
