Director ‘Jayam’ Raja, who hasn’t directed any other heroes other than his younger sibling and actor ‘Jayam’ Ravi, is directing for the first time a film from outside his family fold. Usually, Raja’s films star Ravi as the hero and are produced by their father, ‘Editor’ Mohan. Raja has just completed the shooting of ‘Velayudham’ which stars Vijay in the lead.
Produced by Ravichandran’s Ascar Films, ‘Velayudham’ has the chirpy Genelia and Hansika opposite Vijay. Saranya Mohan plays Vijay’s younger sister in the film. Commenting about the film, Vijay has said that Raja has done a ‘highly appreciable job’ and added that the film has come off very well and would meet the expectations of his fans to the maximum possible extent.
It is said that the dubbing and re-recording work of the film is in progress. After watching the ‘rush’ of the film recently, Vijay simply left the place without uttering even a single word to Raja, who was seated nearby. Some minutes later, Raja got a call from his father who said that Vijay spoke to him and told that he got overwhelmed by the movie which had come out ‘very well’. Mohan also told his elder son that Vijay lauded his efforts in making the film.
“Vijay is a simpleton and it was an unforgettable experience for me to have had the opportunity to direct him in a film. The film would show him ‘differently’ and I’m sure would be liked by his fans and the movie-goers in a big way,” said Raja.
