Chiyaan Vikram at Deccan Chronicle Office !

Written By Chiyaan Vikram on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 | 11:28 AM


When Vikram decided to drop by at our office the excitement was palpable. Along with him we expected the heroines — Anushka and Amala to visit too. However, they didn’t turn up and little Sarah truly made up for their absence. Vijay, the director, Kishore, G.V. Prakash and the energetic producer Dhananjayan peppered the interaction with their thoughts and interesting anecdotes. Interestingly, while Vikram spoke mostly about the film Deiva Thirumagal with passion, the rest chose to engage in more light-hearted banter and connected. The focus was the film’s promotion, and Vikram did an outstanding job of plugging
it, at every given opportunity.

G.V. Prakash, Kishore and the producer included, chose to raise interesting points on media’s reactions, placement of stories in the papers and also about carving a niche through exploratory approaches to music.Speaking about the film, Vikram, said, “The reactions from the live audiences in the theatre were very touching. Men were happy to admit they shed tears.” To this Vijay added, “It took me a while to find backers and I wasn’t sure if Vikram would accept the role. I can’t thank him enough for making the film so special.” While Vikram’s youthful look has been rumoured to have come from frequent spells at Kerala’s spa resort, we had to ask him about cosmetic surgery. He replied, “Why not? If women can do it, why shouldn’t men? I haven’t done any though.” Elaborating on why his family is kept away. He says, “I am very particular that my family enjoys their privacy.”

‘The real hero...

Everyone has mobile phone cameras and I don’t like photos of my family being splashed.” To a question on government change and the positive vibes being ushered in by most producers, Director Vijay, says, “The government change has no bearing on the way films are promoted or distributed. I was very happy with Red Giant, Udhay sir did a great job.” Sarah, the little ‘angel’ from the film stole the show and G.V. Prakash with his quiet unassuming charm, actually said much more than most. Dhananjayan’s expertise in handling stars, promoting the crucial elements of the flick and bonding warmly with the media were on display.
