'Velayudham' that stars Vijay, Hansika and Genelia is directed by 'Jayam' Raja. The team is currently traveling to Ladhak for a ten day shoot schedule. Ladhak and its naturally scenic beauty has always called for 'n' number of shoots from the film industry, within and outside our country.

Meanwhile, post-production work has started side-by-side, and is going at a brisk pace.

Also, Kollywood grapevine is abuzz that 'Velayudham' will see an audio launch by mid-July, we must remember that the movie was launched in mid-July as well, it went on floors by July 15, 2010 and the audio launch will be in mid-July this year!

'Velayudham' sees Vijay as a villager, who comes to the city to withdraw the money he has invested in a chit fund company, where shock awaits him as he understands that he has been cheated. Circumstances throw him into donning the role of superhero Velayudham, a character sketched by Genelia in the film. While Genelia plays a TV journalist, Hansika Motwani plays Vijay's love interest.

Vijay visits his Childwood School

Vijay went down the memory lane recently, when the actor paid a visit to his alma mater Balalok Matriculation Higher Secondary School at Virugambakkam in Chennai, where he interacted with students and teachers.
"It was a very nice experience. I was so happy to meet some of my teachers and to visit the classrooms where I spent my student days," says Vijay, who is playing the role of a college student in 'Nanban'.
"A country's future is in classrooms, they say. I realised this when I visited the school. Students were very bright and they were too smart. I thank Principal Meena Suresh for granting me permission to visit the school," he adds.
Says the principal, "I was a teacher in the same school when Vijay was studying here. I taught him English in his sixth standard. He would be so calm. However, he would take part in sports and other competitions."

Vijay and Jayam Raja with Goundamani’s mother

Vijay starrer Velayudham was shot extensively in Pollachi and its surrounding areas. The film’s director Jayam Raja had chosen Valla Gundapuram near Pollachi for its exotic locations and also because it was apt for the storyline. The director says that this place will be one of the characters in Velayutham.
Interestingly, Valla Gundapuram happens to be noted comedian Goundamani’s hometown. Some scenes were also shot in his house, where his mother still lives. The entire team, including Vijay and Jayam Raja interacted with her to know the lifestyle of the people in the village.
A well that was dug for the film was gifted to the village and the villagers were happy to have got such a useful gift.
