Vel is a forthcoming Tamil movie to be directed by Hari. Surya Sivakumar and Asin Thottumkal will play the lead roles. Surya Sivakumar is playing a double role for the second time after Perazhagan. One of them has a gun in his hand, while the other has the director’s favourite weapon, the aruvaal.
The music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja and it’s being produced by Raja Kaliamman media works. The camera is by Priyan. It’s a typical Hari’s Tamilnadu wild west film, with action, family sentiments, comedy tracks.
Vel has started rolling at Karaikudi on 2nd June. Vel will be filmed in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu in Tirunelveli, Amba Samudram, Pollachi, Dindugal.
Leading producer "Oscar" Ravichandran, has written to the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC), complaining that Surya has walked out of his forthcoming Gautham Vasudev Menon directed Vaaranam Aayiram!
Surya has not completed even 30 percent of the film, and moved over to Hari directed Vel, for which shooting is to start next week. A peeved Ravi in his letter to TFPC says that he has already spent nearly Rs 5 Crore on the film, and was planning to shoot it in US, Afghanistan and other parts of India in June-July. Added to that Gautham Menon is shocked that Surya has gone and changed his Vaaranam Aayiram looks to do a dual role in Vel!
The producer of Vel Mohan Natarajan in his reply to TFPC, has stated that the shooting of his film will start on June 1 at Karaikudi, and he has already paid advances to the unit members and also booked hotel rooms there. He also claims in his letter that he had signed up Surya, nearly six years back to do the film! The TFPC will be holding a meeting sometime this weekend to sort out the issue.
The crux of the matter is that Surya's call sheets have gone haywire, and now he realizes that he will not have a release this year if he does not do Vel. The TFPC is particular that an actor should complete a film and then move over to a new project. Now a compromise is difficult, as Surya is likely to go ahead and do Vel, and then come back to Vaaranam Aayiram, sometime in October.
Meanwhile a compromise formula, is being worked out by mutual friends of the producers, whereby Surya would work 15 days a month with Gautham and the remaining 15 days with Hari! But both the producers and the directors are not willing for it, as it is impossible for an actor to change his looks and do two films simultaneously!
According some leaked information, it is learnt that Nandamuri Balakrishna who acts as Lord Sri Rama in his forthcoming movie Sri Rama Rajyam, is said to be played dual roles in it. The second role is a guest role which appears for a short while in the second half of the movie before climax. According to sources, he has acted as demon king ‘Ravana.’
However, the film makers said to be kept it quite confidential to give his fans a pleasant surprise. This news has surfaced during the launching of memory cards of SRR audio. However, none come forward to confirm this news.
So, Balayya fans have to wait until the movie release and until climax to know whether their beloved hero has played dual roles or not.
Boy! this deepavali the avatar fever has caught on like an epidemic of sorts spilling over to all forms of the media. Blame it on Dasavatharam or the hype it has created, it is now the turn of Surya, not that he hasn’t dabbled with dual roles in films before. What’s surprising is that it is for a television commercial, Aircel is at the helm of affairs for this project.
Oops! Did we make it sound like some clandestine project, no which was not our intention. we are talking about their new commercial that premiered yesterday on Deepavali on all major TV channels.
It seems to have been inspired by the Toyota commercial featuring Aamir Khan that was based on a similar concept the only difference being that it was restricted to 3 avatars for Aamir. In the Aircel commercial, Surya plays different avatars; nine to be precise, of people one would encounter in his daily life. He plays a gardener, security guard, traffic constable, cool dude, set assistants, director and himself. It was pretty cool to see Surya after a long time on the small screen; it is for Aircel’s new ring tone downloads, colorfully shot by Manikandan, the cinematographer for ‘Om Shanti Om’.
Murugadass’ Hindi Gajini, with Aamir Khan and Asin in the lead, is likely to hit the theatres for the summer of 2008. However, announcement on Murugadass’ next project is just out. The project will be produced by Murugadass’ manager Sambath and will star either Vishal or Surya, if reliable sources are to be believed. From which it is evident that Murugadass’ rumored venture with the superstar Rajinikanth did not materialize.
The lead role of the movie is likely to be finalized in a week or two. Surya is busy shooting for Vel after which he is taking up Varanam Aayiram that is expected to be wrapped up by the beginning of 2008. Meanwhile, if Surya’s shelved plan of Vishnuvardhan’s ‘Sarvam’ materializes before Varanam Ayiram’s completion, Surya is likely to take up that venture. For Surya has shown keenness in Vishnuvardhan’s script. In which case, Surya will have to sacrifice Murugadass’ project.
Nevertheless, only an official announcement in this regard will clear the air. Stay glued for the updates.
Hero Nagababu is now acting a film titled 'Sarkar'. His last film was 'Apadamokulavaadu' directed by Posani Krishna Murali. Nagababau is ready to playa dual role in a new film. One will be positive and another will be negative. Rakesh Srivatsava, a newcomer, will direct this film.

Mammootty’s double appearance in a film is considered jinx! In his 25 years career span he has been unsuccessful in the films he has come in double role characters. He has done more than 300 odd films but have portrayed in double roles in very few of them. Only ‘Dada Saheb’ and ‘Samrajyam’ were the two big hits with his in dual role.
Mammootty after a long time is attempting a double role avatar. He is appearing in a new film by Anwar Rasheed who is riding on the biggest success of his career ‘Raja Manikayam’.

Rahul Raj is composing the music. Currently the script and crew of the film is being finalised. The film will go to the sets by the end of November.
Until now, everybody, other than Surya and Jyothika, kept talking about the romance between the two stars. Probably for the first time, one of the persons involved has spoken directly about the relationship.
For a while now, rumors had been making the rounds that Surya and Jyothika are more than just "close friends". Recently, talks began that the two are going to get married in October and that was the reason why Jyothika had not accepted any new film offers.
In a recent interview to the media, 32-year-old actor Surya confirmed that he indeed was planning to get married in December this year and that Jyothika is going to be the bride. He said that he was waiting for his father to make the official announcement regarding this.
Surya is easily one of the most promising young heroes in South Indian films right now thanks to his versatile image.
Surya's Vel is all set to become his biggest hit. Today (Dec 27), the film celebrates its 50th day in 71 screens across Tamilnadu, and is the Diwali 2007 winner by a mile!
Hari has made Surya the new poster boy in B & C centers. If you see the collection pattern of the film, it is doing better in these areas than 'A' stations of Chennai city, Chengalpet and Coimbatore. Out of the 71 screens where it celebrated 50 days in Tamilnadu, 55 screens are in B & C.
Vel is rocking in Madurai, Salem, TK, NSA (North & South Arcot) and TT areas. It is the first Surya film to do well in the heartland of Tamilnadu where commercial mass masala rules. Says a leading distributor in Madurai: " What happened this Diwali was that the favourite horse Vijay sir's ATM was purely a city film and our audiences rejected it, at the same time they lapped up Surya sir's Vel targeted at them".
It clearly means that Surya has put a foot into Vijay country, and he has the making of a mass hero. No wonder K.V Anand is going to make Surya's next film for AVM, targeting this particular segment of the audiences.
What made Vel, such a big hit in rural Tamilnadu? Surya in a dynamic double role, Hari's racy narration and packaging that will be understood by the B & C audiences, Vadivel's comedy track and Asin's mass appeal with family audiences; all this was in the right proportion.
Hero Prabhas is now busy with Bujjigadu Made in Chennai directed by Puri Jagannath. He is now all set to play dual role for the first time. He has agreed to act in a film titled Vivekananda.
