At the press meet of Lakshmi, Prabhu Deva rendered a short and crisp speech that had a childlike heart of gesture. He said, “When we decided to make the film, we were sure about one thing that if a dance film is made, it should be on ‘Vera Level’ graph. More than ennobling Vijay as a good filmmaker, I would acclaim him as a good human being. This is the reason why I am working with him with over and again. I am sure, everyone will love this film beyond dance as it owns an emotional premise.”
Prabhu Deva also broke the news that he would be teaming up with Vijay for Devi 2 and Sam CS will be composing music. Sharing his words of appreciations for his co-stars, he added, “Ditya will just eclipse us easily on the screens effortlessly. She is a genius and audience will accept it.”
Director Vijay said, “Prabhu Deva sir is more like an elder brother to me. As he said, when we decided to make the film, the main motto was to come up with a substantial one. It was a baggage of huge responsibility on me, but with Prabhu sir on my side, things looked complete positive. I owe a lot to Aishwarya Rajesh for accepting this role and she has done s beautiful job. The little girl Ditya will the steal the show hands down. I am thankful to Ravindran sir as many would buy the film only after watching the final output, but he made it happen immediately after hearing the script.”
Aishwarya Rajesh on her part said, “Initially, I was quite determined about playing peppy girl roles after Kaaka Muttai. While working in Parandhu Sella Vaa in Singapore, I got this opportunity and was quite reluctant. But soon after hearing the script by Vijay sir, I couldn’t say No. I am sure Lakshmi will be more than a film and dance. It will definitely have an emotional connection with audiences.”
The film is all set to hit screens on August 24th.
