Chiyaan Vikram might be busy shooting for his film I in China now. But all his mind and heart would be in Chennai eagerly awaiting the response of his movie Thaandavam that is hitting the screens today.
The film, directed by A L Vijay and produced by UTV Films, is releasing today in a big way. A grand premiere was held in Chennai on Thursday night in Chennai.
Heaping laurels on his director, Vikram says, 'Vijay was very clear what he wanted. He did thorough research for his character which helped me to portray it in my own way.'
The concept of human echolocation seems to have fascinated the star. 'I first had apprehensions about this character and on the concept of echolocation. However, when Vijay presented the video links of Daniel Kish (an expert on human echolocation), I was more convinced,' he adds.
'Before the shoot commenced we were fortunate that Daniel was a part of shooting and trained me to do the character more authentically.'
