East meets West in ‘Velayudham’

It has been a wonderful time for Ilaya Thalapathi post his ‘Kavalan’. The film which did a wonderful round at the box office is still attracting the younger and family crowd alike. Right now the actor is busy shooting for ‘Velayudham’ which sees triple heroines in Genelia, Hansika Motwani and Saranya Mohan.

A source close to the movie circles has revealed that director ‘Jayam’ Raja has roped in Hollywood stunt choreographer Tom Delmar for planning the stunt shots for Vijay. The ‘Kavalan’ star, who does a good job flexing his muscles is sure to have a tough schedule working under Tom for ‘Velayudham’.

With ‘Velayudham’, the Hindi blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’ remake ‘Nanban’ as well as Mani Rathnam’s ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ under his collar Vijay sure is one busy bee flying from one schedule to another. Despite facing problems prior to releasing ‘Kavalan’ the actor has proved that he can do more than just delivering punch dialogues and ‘kuthupattu’. You will sure agree with us if you have seen ‘Kavalan’ where the actor won hearts with his sober and mature portrayal.

With the success of ‘Kavalan’ the expectation is running high on Vijay but the actor has been his usual self – cool and composed.

There is news doing the rounds that ‘Velayudham’ will be released on Ilaya Thalapathi’s birthday which falls in July. Music director Vijay Antony is composing music for ‘Velayudham’, so we sure can expect some soul soothing melodies and a couple of fast numbers to please the front benchers too.

With a good director, a young cast ensamble and a music director who has an appeal with the masses we sure can expect ‘Velayudham’ to work wonders with the audience!
