The audio launch of the upcoming Tamil, Telugu bilingual Chandra was held in a grand manner in Chennai last week. Sandalwood’s Prem and Kollywood’s Ganesh Venkataraman play Shriya’s heroes in the film. Vivek, who hasn’t been seen for quite some time, plays a significant role in the film.
Shriya, who looked as dazzling as always, predicted that the film might turn out to be as successful as Magadheera.
Hero Prem speaking at the event said “Though Iam a kananda actor, I love watching Tamil films. In particular, I’m a great fan of Vivek and there were times when I had wondered if I could get myself photographed with the likes of Shriya and Vivek. Now, I’m happy to be part of the film along with them and for this, I remain indebted to director Roopa,”
Vivek, who play Shriya’s brother in the film, was in his elements. “Usually, comedians help the hero in his love affair; once the romance gets finalized, the lead pair goes to foreign locales for singing duet while the comedian who helped them unit toils back home. However, Roopa has been gracious enough to set the script in such a manner to take us to New York. The debutant director has done a terrific job,” he concluded in his typical comical manner.
On the sidelights, Shriya’s mother appeared to be very conscious of getting up on stage. When Roopa called her to come up on stage, she came and posed for the photos and got off the stage immediately.
