The Indian Premier League match is due to begin on April 18th, 2008. About eight cities are participating in this sporting event for which cricketers were teamed up based on an auction. Chennai Super Kings, as the name suggests, is the team from Chennai.
In an effort to popularize and encourage this team, the organizers have decided to make a video film. In this video, two popular film stars, Vijay and Nayanthara, will be seen shaking their legs, along with the cricket team and fans, for a song penned by lyricist Vairamuthu. Music director Manisharma will set the tunes. Rajiv Menon, apart from wielding the camera, will also direct this film.

Prabhudeva: Why my new Vijay film is special

In a recent interview, Prabhudeva said he has been busy with the Pokkiri Hindi remake with Salman Khan. Originally, he said, he had another story for Salman Khan – one which required the star to play four roles. But when Salman saw Pokkiri, he liked it so much, he asked the director if they could remake it in Hindi. This Hindi version of Pokkiri, Prabudeva went on to add, will be more stylish and lavish than the Telugu or Tamil one.

His next film will be with Vijay, and for a change, it will not be a remake but an original story he wrote with the star in mind. It will be packed with action and romance. Deva assures the audience that it will be funnier than Pokkiri, and just as fast moving. There will be several comic scenes that the audience will relish (similar, say, to the famous lift scene from Pokkiri that the audience loved) with a lot of variety in the plot. Music will be scored by Devi Sri Prasad and camera by Ravi Varman. Perhaps the highlight of this new Vijay film, pointed out the director, is Nayanthara as heroine.
