Directed by Siva, Vivegam is the only movie on everyone's mind now. The movie that is said to be releasing in over 3200 screens worldwide, is poised for a mammoth opening weekend success. Thala is after all referred to as the King of Big Openings everytime his movie releases. With Ajith it's not just his mass image that earns him such fanfare, it's also the amount of goodwill he has from his colleagues that inspire his fans to love him more. Not a single person who has encountered the man will deny that he is one of the most humble stars to grace showbiz. His dedication and hardwork is yet another factor that has earned him the respect of his peers.
Art director Milan who has played a significant part in setting the international tone to Vivegam, like everyone else is in awe of Thala's utter dedication to his job. “Being grand is one thing and being international is another thing. Vivegam is both. Tamil cinema will be proud of Vivegam. As per the movie's script we hunted for remote locations where there are practically no humans in sight! Shooting the the freezing weather was tough but the team pulled it off amazingly. Ajith sir led the way in hard work and dedication. It was a pure joy and honour working with him. There is always something new to learn from him,” says Milan who has gone the extra mile to make sure Vivegam looks and feels like an international film.
Vivegam is all set to hit screens on August 24.
