Director Premsai has clarified that forthcoming Tamil romantic thriller Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum is not a remake of English film Premium Rush, and said it is purely coincidental that the protagonists in both the films play messengers.
"I registered my script in 2011. 'Premium Rush' released towards the end of 2012 and by then, we had completed about 60 percent of the shooting. Apart from the fact that the protagonists in both the films are a messenger, which is pure coincidence, nothing else is similar," Prem told IANS.
"It's probably because of the rarity of the protagonist being a messenger in both the films that these allegations have been circulated around," he said.
Produced by film-maker Gautham Vasudev Menon, the film featuring Jai and Yami Gautam was to be made only in Tamil. But Gautham felt it could be made as a bilingual.
"As a producer, he felt the idea was commercially viable. Ultimately, I want to be a producer's director and when there's a scope for doing a film in another language, I don't see why it shouldn't be done," said Premsai, who finds the bilingual culture very healthy.
Titled Courier Boy Kalyan, the Telugu version of the film had released last year.
"Not many debutant directors get an opportunity to be launched in two languages at the same time. Although I wrote the script primarily for Tamil audiences, we changed the treatment for the Telugu version. It may take only about 40 km from Tamil Nadu border to reach Andhra, but there are regional differences," he said.
With over a decade's experience as a television actor, Premsai decided to go behind the camera to satisfy his creative desire.
