What they say…
Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur: After working with Vikram in Deivathirumagal, director Vijay approached us with an unusual script and we greenlighted the project. I saw some portions of the film; I am sure it will be a visual treat for the Tamil audience.
Director Vijay: When Vikram expressed his desire to do another film with me, I was elated. Not wanting to waste his talent in action and comedy, I decided to showcase him in a new light in Thaandavam. Knowing Vikram, he excels in every frame.
Hero Vikram: When director Vijay and I team up on a project, people’s expectations about it only grow. My character in Thaandavam will surely make people, especially my fans, watch it more than once. When I saw the visually challenged Daniel Kish, I was amazed at the way he leads his life. I learnt a lot from him to portray my role.
Music director G. V. Prakash Kumar: This is my fourth film with director Vijay and it happens to be my 25th as composer. I am glad the songs of Thaandavam have come out well and hope they remain etched in people’s memory. After the audio release, I have got a wonderful response from different quarters.
