Debutant director Jayasurya had launched Speed a long time ago with Dileep and Gajala in the lead roles.
Dileep plays the role of a First Year student at a college dedicated to sportspersons. Gajala had already acted in many Tamil and Telugu films. The film's shooting began on the 18th of August, 2005. The film was initially named Speed. Then it was changed to Fast Track. Now it has become The Speed Track.
Why did 'Speed' become so slow?
The film's producer Zubair replies, "We initially had planned to complete the film's shooting within 50 days. But we weren't able to complete Dileep's portions within the time that he gave us. Unfortunately, Dileep had other film commitments that he had previously agreed to. It took us a long time to get his call sheets again. The film is ready now."
Why did the film's release get delayed?
Dileep had scheduled the release of one film or the other during each season. This time around, he didn't have any film release. That was why we decided to release the film now.
