Speaking at the teaser release function of the film, director K. V .Anand said, “Suriya plays two characters, Akilan and Vikilan. Kajal plays the heroine. The music is by Harris jayaraj.”
The director said he was inspired to make the film while on a flight from Bangkok. “I read about a pair of conjoined twins who married two girls and raised families. However, the story of Maatran has nothing in common with that of the twins I read about.”
In a lighter vein
Trailer, audio and teaser launches often prove to be a boring affair with most celebrities showering praises on the stars associated with the event. However, the audio launch of Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom was, to say the least, entertaining.
RJ Balaji, who hosted the event, added spice to the proceedings with his snappy one-liners and sarcastic taunts. Sample this, while inviting the dignitaries on stage to launch the audio of the film, he said, “Neraiaya paduthula kathaiyae kanomnu irrukira samayathulae, Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom padam nalla kathaiyoda vanthirukku,” (At a time when most films don’t have stories in them, here’s a film with a good story) sending the audience into peals of laughter.
Director Balaji Tharaneetharan who delivered a brief speech was the next to be targeted by RJ Balaji.
Immediately after his speech, RJ Balaji said, “If you noticed, the director just spoke two lines. I learnt from the producer that the director has repeated these lines almost 753 times from the morning in a bid to memorise them,” evoking laughter from the audience.
