Velaikkaran starring Sivakarthikeyan, Fahad Fazil and Nayanthara in the lead roles is gearing up for a grand release on December 22. Directed by Mohan raja and produced by R D Raja under the banner 24AM Studios, the movie has already got attention of all. Exciting about the grand release of the movie, the DOP Ramji says “Mohan Raja told me one line story of Velaikkaran during Chennai floods. I was abruptly spellbound over the concept and assured that it is going to be a film with huge impact.
I would say that Velaikkaran will be an unusual cinema and will turn lights on how the generation of tomorrow’s world should be. I was very surprised over the discipline and hard work of not Mohan Raja alone, but his assistants as well. I would leave the shooting spot by evenings and when i return back the in morning , i would see assistants walking like Zombies. The reason is that Mohan Raja and his assistants stay up at spot discussing scenes till early morning 4 a.m. and come back again by 8 a.m. for shoot.” When asked about working with Sivakarthikeyan, Ramji told “All that I can say is that Siva has never done such a movie before. We were so much concerned about his looks in this film. He goes through 3 different transitions in the movie and we had to accordingly design his looks and visuals as well.”
