Like many recent movies which had to undergo a title change in the recent past, Suriya's upcoming film Masss too has faced the same restriction, thanks to the tax exemption rules.
If a film doesn't have a Tamil title then it loses its eligibility to enjoy tax exemption even if it clears the Censor Board with a clean 'U' certificate.
Hence, revealing that Masss had to be rechristened, Premji Amaren has also spilled the beans about Suriya's character name in the upcoming movie and the meaning of 'Masss', in context with the film.
"Suriya's character name in the film is Massilamani and he will be called as Masss by the locals and so we have named the film, Masss Engira Massilamani", said the Goa actor.
Interestingly, Masss Engira Massilamani is the first movie in Venkat Prabhu's career to have come out of the CBFC chambers with a clean 'U'. All his previous movies were either given a U/A or A certificates.
Looks like the film aims at wooing family audience and kids as promised by the director Venkat Prabhu even before the project went on floors.
Masss Engira Massilamani has Parthiban, Samuthirakani, Jayaram, Pranitha Subhash in prominent roles. It also houses two comedians and a comedienne in Premji, Karunas and Vidyullekha Raman respectively.
With the movie all set to hit the screen this Friday(29th May 2015), it'll be interesting to see if Masss can live up to its expectations. Stay locked for further updates.
