Vijay Antony’s upcoming film Annadurai’s teaser has already created a buzz about the film. The makers held a press conference recently to launch the audio of the film, and during the event, producer Gananavel Raja was all praise for the lead actor.
“There’s so much we can learn from Vijay Antony. He has shaped his career on his own without being a burden on anyone,” said Gananavel.
However, Gananavel Raja raised eyebrows when he talked about the behavior of “unprofessional actors.” The audience, including the press, instantly knew that the producer was indirectly taking a dig at Trisha Krishnan and Simbu, who are one of the leading actors of Kollywood at present.
Gnanavel continued, “When we have such highly committed and magnanimous actor on side, we also have some highly unprofessional actors on the other side. We recently received a complaint about an actor (referring to Simbu), who was responsible for a producer’s loss of Rs 18 crore. He shot for 29 days and during this course he would arrive on sets late every day and shoot for just four hours. He insisted that the film be released with just 30 percent of what they shot. I have never seen such an irresponsible actor in my life. We are planning to take strict action against him. Another popular comedian (Vadivelu) is creating lot of problems for the producer of his latest film.”
The producer went on to narrate an episode with one of the leading stars who made wait him for over ten hours for nothing.
At the audio launch, the audience got to witness a glimpse of Annadurai and were impressed with the work by the filmmaker and actors. Co-producer and actor Radhika Sarathkumar said, “I believe in hard work and truth. Both #Vijays – @actorvijay and @vijayantony are very quiet off-screen but they transform on screen.”
Actor and producer Sarathkumar feels the film will justify its title.
Vijay Antony has also composed music for the film and also served as the film editor for the first time in his career. Produced by Fatima Vijay Antony and Raadhika Sarathkumar, the film began production in February this year.
