RS Infotainment Elred Kumar’s Yaan audio was launched successfully at a FM Station. Yaan is the directorial debut of ace cinematographer Ravi K Chandran and  stars  Jiiva and Thulasi Nair in the lead with music by Harris Jayaraj.

Later the team held a press meet. Director Ravi K Chandran, Producer Elred Kumar,  Jiiva, Thulasi Nair and Lyricist Tamarai attended the event.  The audio of Yaan has already become a hit. The Gana Bala song in the album is already on everybody’s lips.  

Ravi K Chandran traced his journey with Yaan which he wanted to make it in Hindi first. The movie was shot extensively in Morocco. Ravi K Chandran said : “It was KV Anand who asked me to concentrate on direction alone and I thank him for that. I went through a lot of difficulties in shooting Yaan as on the first day of the shoot in Morocco, my cameraman Gopi broke his leg during the shoot and I had to take over. It is easy to be a camera man than being a director.”

Yaan brings the successful pair of Jiiva and Producer Elred Kumar of RS Infotainment after their earlier movie KO. Incidentally, KO starred actress Thulasi’s elder sister Karthika. The director said Yaan is based on a newspaper item and is about an aimless rich youth who gets caught in a difficult situation.

Jiiva was all excited about his role in Yaan, and said it is one of his best films till date. Says Jiiva : “Yaan is about an easy guy caught in a hard situation. I agreed to do the film immediately after Ravi sir narrated the script. It is a different type of commercial film, which will entertain big time. Just watch the trailer and you will understand it better.”

Producer Elred Kumar after his recent success with Yaamirukka Bayamey is getting ready to release Yaan soon. He is planning a big trailer launch of the film sometime in early June, as the film is gearing up for an August release.
