Tamannah is back in K’town after a long hiatus with Ajith’s forthcoming Pongal offering, 'Veeram'. The movie releasing, on January 10, directed by Sirutthai Siva, revolves around Thala who plays Vinayagam. His four haughty brothers are portrayed by Vidarth, Bala, Munish and Sohail. The technical crew sans the entire cast recently met the press. “It’s a wholesome family entertainer,” says Siva who found Ajith’s salt and pepper looks perfectly appropriate for the script. “I had conceived of a  rough-and-tough, untamed character in Vinayagam. Hence, I retained his  look in 'Veeram' as well. Ajith is being cast in a rural role after a long time,” he points out.

On Tamannah, he says, “Unlike in big, commercial films where heroines are being used only for a glam purpose, here, Tamannah is the backbone of the film.” He denied the rumour that the script was inspired by a Malayalam film. “Veeram is an original script of mine, and it will be dubbed in Telugu as well later,” he says, clarifying that it has nothing to do with Rajinikanth’s blockbuster from yesteryear, Murattu Kaalai. While Devi Sri Prasad does the music for the first time for an Ajith starrer, Vetri is behind the camera.
