Exactly before 5 years, the same festive occasion of Diwali on this particular date witnessed the grand release of Vijay’s Velayudham. The film happened to be the first ever direct movie from filmmaker Mohan Raja, where few sources claimed it to be yet another remake of Telugu movie ‘Azad’ featuring Nagarjuna, late actress Soundarya and Shilpa Shetty in lead roles.
Here in Tamil, the film featured Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Genelia D’ Souza and Hansika Motwani in lead characters. Now with 5 years passing by, Mohan Raja this morning tweeted on his micro-blogging page saying, “Feeling Excited on winning 5 years of @actorvijay friendship n his fans love on this #5yearsofvelayudham day.. :))” (Sic)
It is worth mentioning that soon after the grand success of Thani Oruvan, Jayam Ravi was supposed to work with Vijay and Mammootty in a political thriller, which didn’t happen due to some reasons. Now the same script is reportedly shifted towards Sivakarthikeyan and Fahadh Faasil, which will take off on November 11. The movie will feature Nayantara in female lead role alongside an ensemble star-cast of Prakash Raj, Sneha, Rohini, RJ Balaji, Satish and many more prominent actors like Thambi Ramaiah.
