The distributor for Shivaji in Chennai City Abhirami
Ramanathan has bagged the rights of the Asin - Surya film
vel for the Chennai City area for 1.5 crore rupees. The film
will be released in theatres along with GV Films. The same
partnership saw the successful release of Shivaji.
Ironically, the fee that he bought the rights for is Rs. 65 lakh
higher than the previous Asin, Surya film Ghajini. Director
Hari, who has directed Vel, last directed
Thamirabarani. Hit pair Asin and Surya come together again
for this film.
Talking about the films rights, he said, "I hope the film gets a
good opening. I have decided to form a partnership and get the
rights of future films along with GV Films." Vel is
scheduled for a September release.
