Following the grand reception and commercial success of Kanaa, Sivakarthikeyan Productions’ next outing “NENJAMUNDU NERMAYUNDU ODU RAJA” has already generated decent graph of expectations. The audio and trailer launch of this film happened today (June 3) and here are some of the excerpts from the event.
Actor Mayilsamy said, “I have the habit of not listening to the scripts when someone approaches me for their movies. It’s because no one comes to the industry for making flop movies. I have to say something about Sivakarthikeyan. His phenomenal growth from a mimicry artist to a top league actor is something more amazing. I am sure that the film will definitely cater to the tastes of family audiences.”
Cinematographer UK Senthil Kumar said, “Karthik Venugopal kept improvising a lot everyday and his proficiency kept enhancing every day.”
Co-producer Kalai said, “I thank each and everyone for being here for this special occasion. Initially, I had other ideas about this occasion and later we felt that Black Sheep team is always innovative in their ideas. So we had this task given to them and they have made it more special now. I have to talk about cast and crew of NNOR for their creative and proficient working style.”
Chutti Aravind said, “Before few years, myself and my brother Vicky casually started a YouTube platform, which was something completely different from our routine style. Very few had appreciated and encouraged us during that time and Sivakarthikeyan brother is one among them. Today, there are many bothers to him and that’s all because of his love and special care for all.”
Politician turned actor Nanjil Sampath said, ” I thank RJ Shah of Radio Mirchi for being the initial reason for me to be a part of this film. I am so happy to see Karthik Venugopal who happens to be a man from my native place for making
a good film. I thank Sivakarthikeyan for offering me an opportunity to be a part of this film. Whenever someone comes to Chennai with more dreams and aspirations, Youtube has been their main source of escalation. In this instance, I was once interviewed by the Black Sheep team and from then, I have been a part of their family.” Just as everyone was given some hilarious topics, Nanjil Sampath was given a topic to talk upon “There is no end for me” and he referred a wonderful quote cited by Former Late CM Kalaignar Karunanidhi whose 96th birthday is celebrated today.
Actress Shirin Kanchwala said, “I thank each and everyone in the team for making me feel comfortable. Especially, I am thankful to the Tamil tutors for making me render the dialogues on the shooting spot.”
Actor RJ Vigneshkanth said, “Although, I have been a part of such audio launches and special events, but this one is really special to me.” He was given a topic to talk on “Cinema and then joining politics.” He said, “Blacksheep has already been a part of politics and we have been consistently reviewing the political scenario. It’s not about contesting in elections but making such contributions. We started Blacksheep with 6 members and later it enlarged into 22 family members. There was a special person to all of us named Siva Subramaniam Anna, who passed away in an accident. Today, we are really missing him and owe a lot to him. We are presenting NNOD as a pakka commercial entertainer and we are sure everyone will enjoy this in theatres from June 14.”
Music director Shabir was invited to the dais and given the topic to speak on – I will use only Ilayaraja songs. He said, “Isaignani sir has been in my subconscious mind from the age of 4. He has been an integral part of my life. Speaking about working in NNOR, I must say that we have used some new instrumentals for the first time in a movie. Sivakarthikeyan brother is a huge inspiration to me and just like Blacksheep team, I am happy to see that I am here working with them. Sivakarthikeyan brother was the one who launched my “Yaayum” from Sagaa and after listening to all the songs, he told that we will definitely work together.”
Actor Rio Raj said, “Thank you Blacksheep team for making my moments so much special. Press and media have played an important role in enhancing my journey. Karthik Venugopal and RJ Vigneshkanth were the ones who blindly trusted that one day I would become a hero. Sivakarthikeyan Anna has always shown a special interest in me. There was a time when I was doing a show in television Channel and couldn’t host the show for some time due to my illness. Following my shows, he personally called me up and enquired about my health. His love and care didn’t stop there and it continues till today and I owe him a lot. It was like a formal meeting between the Blacksheep team and me for the first day and from Day 2, we became a family..”
Filmmaker Karthik Venugopal was invited to the stage after a small video was played on his philanthropic deeds. He said, “This is completely an emotional moment for me as I used to attend such audio launches standing somewhere at the corner. Today, I am here happy to be here and all credit goes to the entire Blacksheep team for making my dream come true.”
Actor-Producer Sivakarthikeyan said, “I usually think that there must be a reason behind every film we produce. Kanaa was made for the sake of our friends. The next one was to bring online and TV channel personalities together. So it all happens with NNOR and while listening to the script, I was confident that it will surely be received well by all. After watching the film’s climax, I was happy that we have done justice. I am someone who believes in time and destiny. Before four years, I had the ringtone of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR song “Nenjamundu Nermayundu Odu Raja” and today to have the same title for the film is so much surprising and nothing was planned. Especially, to have the audio launched on the 96th birthday of Kalaignar Karunanidhi ayya is a blessing. I used to be surprised with Karthik Venugopal for he would do so much help to needy people even when he didn’t earn much. I used to regularly watch Rio as an anchor as I love his shows a lot. Kanaa has been an important film in our journey and we announced NNOR ad Production No.2 during the audio launch of Kanaa. Now, we are announcing our Production No.3 that will be directed by my brother Arun of Aruvi fame. We are releasing NNOR in June 14 and the content will be definitely liked by all as the story is taken from everyone’s life.”
