The action kings of the Tamil and Malayalam film industry join hands in ‘Vande Mataram’. The much-anticipated bilingual Vande Mataram, joining Arjun and Mammooty being directed by T. Arvind, was earlier titled Aruvadai. According to latest reports, the makers have decided to retain the name ‘Vande Mataram’ in Malayalam and Tamil.
“In Malayalam, the film is titled Vande Mataram while in Tamil, it was tentatively titled Aruvadai. The title Vande Mataram was earlier registered by another producer at the Council. Since his registration period has expired, we have changed the title in Tamil so that the film can be released simultaneously as Vande Mataram in both the languages,” producer Henry said.
Produced with a whopping budget of Rs. 14 cores under the banner of Pankaj Productions, Vande Mataram is an investigative action thriller, the story of a group of police officers who go hunting for a group of terrorists who have been creating havoc in the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border.
