Chennai, Feb 8 (IANS) Filmmaker Jeeva Shankar, who has reunited with actor-composer Vijay Anthony for upcoming Tamil thriller “Yaman” after 2012 film “Naan’, says the project is a homecoming of sorts for him.
“It is indeed a homecoming for me, as I join Vijay after ‘Naan’. His transformation during this period of time is astonishing,” Jeeva said in a statement.
He said the script of “Yaman” was with him while he was working on “Naan”.
“I was contemplating the idea of making this film with some other hero back then. In this interim, Vijay had grown in leaps and bounds as an actor and as a hero too. Now, he fits the title role of ‘Yaman’ perfectly,” he said.
Vijay will also double up as the music composer of the film, which also features Mia George.
The film will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
