In Velaikkaran, I’ve asked more questions for the common man than in Thani Oruvan: Mohan Raja
After the blockbuster success of Thani Oruvan, director Mohan Raja is back again with another socially relevant film – Velaikkaran. The movie starring Sivakarthikeyan, Fahadh Faasil and Nayanthara in the lead roles is one of the most awaited Tamil films of the year. The success of Thani Oruvan, the stellar star cast and Anirudh’s songs are the major reasons for such high expectations.
Velaikkaran lies on similar lines to Thani Oruvan. While that film was about medical mafia, Velaikaaran deals with food adulteration and how a slum dweller fights against the corrupt system. The makers have dedicated the movie to the working class people.
Recently, director Mohan Raja said that he is very confident about the movie as it is the story of every commoner. As per the director, the movie is easily relatable to the hardworking laborers of the society. He is quoted saying, “No one can bash or troll Velaikkaran. The common man will be able to relate to the film. I’ve asked a lot more questions, relating to the common man, here than in Thani Oruvan. I feel the responsibility to do good cinema, not just another time pass entertainer”
Recently, the movie was screened for the censor board officials for film certification. It is reported that the officials were highly impressed and awarded the movie a clean U certificate without cutting any scene. RD Raja’s 24 AM Studios is funding this big budget movie, slated to hit screens worldwide on December 22.
