As predicted, director-actor Ameer’s upcoming directorial venture Aadhi Bhagavan has been proceeding at a lackluster pace. Like his contemporaries Bala and Selvaraghavan, Ameer too has this tendency of taking ages to complete his films. Though the final product is always appreciable and enjoyable, industry-watchers feel that it’s high time the likes of Ameer pulled up their socks and worked faster.
‘Jayam’ Ravi has been cast opposite sizzler Neetu Chandra in this film. Neetu, who danced with Ameer for the Kannitheevu Ponna…. item number in Mysskin’s Yudhdham Sei, managed to build up a rapport with the latter and went on to bag the heroine’s role in Aadhibagawan. Ravi shaved off the long hair and beard he had grown for the film to act in Prabhudeva’s Engeyum Kaadhal last year.
Ravi is not amused by the time taken by Ameer to wrap up the film as it rids him off the opportunities to take on many films. The film has been in the making for more than the past couple of years. Reports say that some ‘differences’ have crept up between Ameer and Ravi due to the verbal volleys hurled by the former against the latter.
Ravi, who has been in the industry for many years now, feels that he surely deserved better treatment from Ameer. Even some technicians and crew members seem to be agreeing with Ravi’s feelings.
