Ilayatalapathy Vijay’s Puli is postponed to October 1st 2015 from the originally planned date, September 17th. Producers, P.T.Selva Kumar and Shibu Thameens in their press release stated that post production work of the film is taking longer than anticipated and the delay in release is unavoidable to maintain quality. We gathered information that the CG work of the film is taking a lot of time to fine tune as the film has 2200 standalone CG shots in it. 2200 CG shots is highest for any film ever to be made in India. Puli is being directed by Chimbu Devan and Devi Sri Prasad is scoring the music. Sruthi Hassan and Hansika are paired with Vijay in this fantasy adventure. Sri Devi is playing a villainous role. SVR Media is presenting the film in Telugu.
Ilayatalapathy Vijay’s latest offering Puli is being dubbed in to Telugu for a simultaneous release. Latest we hear is that SVR Media bought the dubbing rights for 8 crores. This is a very good number considering the fact that Vijay is relatively new to Telugu audience. Vijay recently tasted success in Telugu with Jilla. Hansika and Sruthi Hassan are paired with Vijay in this Socio-Fantasy film directed by Chimbu Devan. Music scored by Devi Sri Prasad was released yesterday in Chennai. This prestigious film is being produced by Shibu Thameens and Selva Kumar in Tamil. SVR Media will present it in Telugu. Puli is likely to have 2200 VFX shots, highest for an Indian film.
She might not have tasted a decent box office success in Telugu but the talented and good looking Haripriya is in demand in Kannada films. Last year Vaarahi Vennalave (it means Ravoi Chandamama) starring Dinesh Atthakathi and her was a big hit. Director Shashidharan had this love story narrated differently and Haripriya says she fell for the story instantly. “He is fabulous, it is his first film. The minute he starts explaining the scene, you get excited and want to get into the character soon and easily. He has immense clarity and it is a love story that revolves around a girl Meera, can’t reveal much at this stage. There was lot of emoting more through expressions and eyes than dialogues. It is an extremely strong character and I am pinning hopes on this, only when this releases I will take up other scripts.”
The actor talks about the rest of the projects, she has five major releases in Kannada and one film in Tamil waiting to hit the screen. “Ugram was a big success in Kannada, released in 2014. After that there was no looking back, I signed Ranna (Attharintiki Dharedi), I played Pranita’s role. I am so happy that I got back to back hits. Bullet Bhasya is also a commercial film, Sharan is the hero and is headed for a July release. The songs have become popular here. Ricky has Rakshit Shetty as the hero, he is a director cum actor. This film however has not been directed by him. I have a double role, one as a naxalite and the other a soft one. The Naxalite has been presented not the way you’d see in an art film, it is a commercial love story. I have lost weight for this film and I am maintaining that. Ranatantra is in post production. It is a thriller and a love story, the director Adiram has blended thriller and love very well. Vijay Raghavendra is the hero. Right now I am shooting for Rajadhani 2 (Kannada) with Preetam.”
