Velaraj praises Dhanush and opens up about VIP

Velai Illa Pattadhari which is all set for a release on July 18th is one of the most expected films this month. Directed by Velraj, the film has Dhanush and Amala Paul in lead roles. It marks Dhanush’s 25th film in this career and Amala Paul’s first film post marriage. “Directing for the first time was quite a difficult task. Every time I was setting up a scene, I was thinking more in terms of camera angles and lights. There have been times when I would be busy looking through the lens, and I would have forgotten to say ‘action’. I used to wonder why no one was giving the shots, and Dhanush, Amala and the rest of the team would burst out laughing,” confesses Velraj to a daily.

When quizzed about the central theme of the film, “VIP will be a mass entertainer, and will deal with the importance of relationships in a person’s life,” says the lensman-turned-director. He is all praise for Dhanush and his working style. “He is a pleasure to work with. We discussed the script several times and he would even come up with suggestions. He has built a six-pack for a fight sequence, and has penned the lyrics for the songs,” says Velraj.
