Shankar who directed blockbusters like Gentleman, Bharateeyudu, Aparichitudu etc started a production house and produced films by encouraging new directors. He produced blockbuster films like Kadhal and 23rd Pulakesi. Now he completed the 3rd film ‘Veyyil’. This film is being simultaneously dubbed and released in Telugu as Vesavi by N Surya Prakasa Rao on SP Creations banner. Santosham Suresh is also one of the producers.
Audio of Vesavi was launched at Green Park Hotel in Chennai on 18th of November. Shankar released the audiocassette and gave the first unit to Vikram. This function was graced by Vikram, Bharat, Namitha, Pasupati, Tarun Gopi, Surender Reddy, Sukumar, Perarasu, GV Prakash, N Prakasa Rao, Veturi, Vasantha Balan, Sri Rama Krishna and Santosham Suresh.
Shankar introduces GV Prakash (19 year old nephew of AR Rehman) as music director with Vesavi.
Speaking on the occasion Shankar said, “I was busy in shooting for Shivaji film. At that time Vasanthabalan came to be with a story. He narrated a heart touching story and I end up having tears in my eyes. I gave him a go ahead. This film is an emotion based one. I am sure that Vesavi is going to be a great film. I am satisfied as a producer.”
Lyricist Veturi said that he is impressed the way human relations are dealt in this film.
Vikram said, “Shankar is known for making good entertainers with sugarcoated messages. I am sure that Pasupati’s histrionics are going to be highlight of the film.”
Suresh Kondeti said that he is going to promote this film the way he did for Premiste film. He thanked Rama Krishna for spending 25 days to pen dialogues for this film.
