Vijay Antony for upcoming Tamil thriller Yaman after the
2012 film Naan, says the project is a homecoming of sorts
"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.

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.
