A Rajasekar, who earlier directed Vishal’s Sathyam, is back with Uyire Uyire, “a fun-filled romance” that stars yesteryear actress Jaya Prada’s son Siddhu, and Hansika in the lead. The film is a remake of the 2012 Telugu film Ishq, which was directed by Vikram Kumar.
“I was so glad that Jaya Prada madam, who has done close to 300 films and has seen many directors, chose me to direct her son’s debut,” says the director.
He says that the movie revolves around this particular concept: while falling in love is not wrong, but eloping is. “It might be thrilling, but ultimately, not satisfying to the lovers. A proper wedding with parents, relatives and friends celebrating their love is what will symbolize their romance,” he explains.
He says that he chose Hansika because the role demanded someone who can be mischievous and cute like Nadiya, Revathy or Jyotika. “Hansika has a bubbly screen presence like them. She will be there throughout the film,” he adds.
