60 Vayadhu Maaniram is an upcoming film that has Prakash Raj, Vikram Prabhu, and Samuthirakani in the lead roles. The film is produced by Kabali producer Kalaipuli S Thanu. The film is slated for a release on August 31.
Talking exclusively to Behindwoods about the film, producer Thanu revealed the reactions of Prakash Raj, Vikram Prabhu, and Ilayaraja's reaction to the film.
Ilayaraja's reaction: "Ilayaraja, after watching the movie, just stood still and speechless. He immediately called the Director & actor Prakash Raj and said - It's been a really long time for me. You guys have given me good food to eat. I have really enjoyed and put my entire emotion into it. Prakash Raj after seeing the 1st reel, he fell on Ilayaraja's feet and got his blessings. Radha Mohan has given more than what he had committed for this film."
Vikram Prabhu - "When there was some dates issue with Vikram Prabhu, I had asked him not to miss this film and we couldn't push the dates too. He then finally agreed and started shooting. After the 1st half, he called me and checked where I was. I told him I am in the office and he directly came there and thanked me. He also added that 'You have given me a wonderful movie.' This will be a big break for me and it will have the feel of Dangal for Tamil audience."
Prakash Raj: After Mozhi, I wanted to do something like this. One of my friends asked me to listen to the script which Prakash Raj had and it was good. Immediately I spoke to Jabbar sir, met Prakash Raj and took the rights from him. He just put 1 condition. If I was producing the film, he wanted to play that specific character and I blindly agreed to it. I will be doing this movie in Telugu & Hindi as well.", signed off Thanu.
