Jayam Raja compares Velayutham with Rajini's Baasha

‘Jayam’ Raja has almost completed the shooting of his upcoming big-budget film Velayudham which has Vijay in the lead. The film unites Vijay together with Genelia for the second time after Sachin a few years back. Bubbly and pretty Hansika would be the second heroine in the film which also has the talented Saranya Mohan playing Vijay’s younger sister.

The film has been set to score by Vijay Antony and has been produced by Ravichandran’s Ascar Films. “As such, equal footage has been given to both the heroines. Though sparks flew between them at the shooting spot, there weren’t any verbal duel or the case of both of them looking away from each other. The ‘ego’ problem was very much there but didn’t go beyond our limit,” said Raja.

Genelia’s last film in Tamil was Uthamaputhiran opposite Dhanush which didn’t do exceptionally well at the box-office. On the contrary, Hansika is quite happy at the way her last film Engeyum Kaadhal fared at the box-office. Both the heroines are praying for Velayudham to become a super-duper hit to resurrect and sustain their respective careers.

Speaking about the film, Raja further added that but for a solitary song, the shooting has been completed. He likened the film to Rajini’s phenomenal hit Baadshah when he said that Velahudham to Vijay would be like Enga Veettu Pillai was to MGR and Baashha was to Rajini.
