Audio of the Jeyam Ravi starrer Santosh Subramaniam is slated to release on Sunday, March 23, 2008 and to give heads up to the media, the actor’s brother and director Raja called in for a media briefing at the Green Park Hotel in Chennai. Raja briefed the media about the remake – SS is the remake of the cult Telugu hit Bommarillu, incidentally directed by Raja’s former assistant director.
Addressing the media, Raja declared that it’s no mean task to remake a movie. “People think it’s as easy as falling of a log to remake movies, but it’s a very difficult task since the movie has already achieved a cult status. It’s like trying to redo a magician’s trick after seeing him perform. Luckily, we have got everything in place and I’m pleased with the output,” Ravi declared.
In his briefing, Jeyam Ravi stated that he plays the guy who leads a double life by being a quiet studious at home and a freak outside. For which, Raja was quick enough to interrupt and warn mockingly at Ravi not to let out the spoilers to the media. Prakashraj plays Ravi’s authoritarian father and the scenes between the two seem to have turned out convincingly well according to Ravi. Genelia retains her lead role for the remake.
