Silambarasan Lives Up To his name

Lakshmi Movie Makers launched their 25th film, Silambattam starring Silambarasan and debutante Sanaa Khan at AVM Studios on December 7. A large gathering of film luminaries attended the function. Silambarasan nee Simbu sported an orthodox brahmin look and faced the camera along with heroine Sanaa at the Lord Vinayaka temple in the studio complex. Later addressing the media, the irrepressible actor said in a lighter vein that since people called him a good guy now, he is playing a soft role. He hastens to add that how and why a soft-spoken gentle orthodox youngster turns into a volcano form the crux of the theme. “It is a positive character in an action entertainer.” He attended the shoot with a bandaged finger. The actor suffered an injury while shooting for his forthcoming film, Kalai. Undaunted he completed the day’s work for the film. Heroine Sanaa Khan is a model from Mumbai and says it is her first film assignment. Another heroine has to be chosen. John Vijay who made a mark with Oram Po plays the antagonist. Cinematographer Saravanan debuts as the director with Silambattam. “To concentrate more as a filmmaker I entrusted the job of cinematography to my friend and erstwhile associate Madhi,” he said. “Set in rural and city ambience, the shoot will take place in Kumbakonam, parts of South Tamil Nadu and in Chennai, he disclosed. Dhina composes the music. Producers Muralidharan and Swaminathan hoped that their 25th film would run as many weeks
