My wish has come true: Vijay

Vijay was one among the early birds who called on AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa on Friday, even as her party was heading for a massive win in the Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.
The actor, who supported the AIADMK-alliance in the polls, had a few minutes’ exchange with her. The ‘Ilaya Thalapathi’ was accompanied by his father and popular filmmaker S A Chandrasekar.
Speaking to reporters later, Vijay said, “I was really hoping for a change. And it has happened now. This is a much needed change and the scale of victory is amazing. People have expressed themselves in a big way.”
Expressing gratitude to the members of his Vijay Makkal Iyakkam who had worked for the AIADMK-led alliance, the actor said, “Respecting my request, they worked extremely hard. I thank them sincerely.”

'Nanban' music tracks!

Though this summer is one of the hottest in many years it continues to offer some really cool flicks for movie lovers this season. Kollywood is continuously churning out good films back-to-back with the most-wanted heroes of today in Tamil. Here is some good news for all you ‘Ilayathalapathy’ fans out there.

On one side, director Shankar is shooting ‘Nanban’ at a brisk pace. The film is a multi-starrer with Vijay playing the lead. On the other end, the music director Harris Jayaraj is contributing the tunes for this film. From what close associates to the crew reveal, it looks like the music album of ‘Nanban’ will have four songs. The lyrics, for all the songs, have been penned by Madhan Karky.

‘Nanban’ has retained the refrain ‘All is well’ in its Tamil remake too. This number has been belted out by Vijay Prakash and it looks like this song will showcase the young and energetic phase of college life. This might be the opening track in the album. Another number is on friendship and goes ‘Nee Yen Nanban…’ This song is said to have been rendered by Benny Dayal and Blaaze.

The next number looks like a romantic one and begins with ‘Uyire Engai…’ this song has been crooned by Hariharan and Chinmayi. Looks like this might strike a chord with the audience. Another track goes ‘Killi Killi…’

We’ve given you the latest updates on ‘Nanban’s music tracks, however we will know things for sure only when the album hits the stands! A tentative date has not been zeroed in yet for the music launch but be sure that we will let you know well in advance about the big event. Comeback for more updates right here on!

Vijay & Shankar in Holland

We are sure it will be a huge relief for the ‘Ilaya Thalapathi’ from the scorching heat griping the state. Vijay is taking a trip to this European destination as a part of work along with his ‘Nanban’ team intact with his director and co-artist in tow. Director Shankar is planning to shoot a romantic song from the Netherlands with the Tulip Garden Kuekenhof as its back drop.
This particular spot seems to be director Shankar’s favorite what with the director using this same garden for the “Kumaari…” song from ‘Anniyan.’ Kuekenhof provides a splash of vibrant color to any scene. ‘Anniyan’ saw Vikram as a schizophrenic patient. The film was a huge hit in the commercial as well as critical circles.
Now, this song to be shot will feature Vijay and Ileana. ‘Nanban’ is the remake of Bollywood blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’ which had Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Kareena Kapoor playing important roles. Both the films have been inspired by Chetan Bhagat’s popular novel ‘5 Point Someone.’ The music for ‘Nanban’ is by Harris Jayaraj and we are sure he will do wonders with his tunes this time too!
