Prashanth will bounce back, CM vouchesActor?producer?director Thiagarajan?s historical project Ponnar Sankar officially kick started yesterday, July 12, 2009 at Vallvar Kottam, Chennai. The grand set, symbolic to the grandeur of the movie?s production values, witnessed the glitterati of Kollywood and the Chief Minister and other ministers of Tamil Nadu gracing the occasion. The movie was officially launched with Latha, Rajathi Ammal, M N Rajam, Ambika, Sachu, Seetha, Rambha and Uma Riaz Khan lighting the auspicious Kuthuvilakku.

Napoleon startled the audience in his kingly garb and clarified soon enough that he?s taking part in the opening sequence of the movie that is scheduled to be filmed on the stage.

Thiagarajan greeted the guests and recollected how the project took shape. ?I wanted Prasanth to be part of a historical venture and requested the CM for a story. Since he?s busy with his commitments, he gave me his two books Payum Puli and Ponnar Shankar of which I almost immediately finalized the latter. And I am proud to say that I have selected some of the best artists like Sathyaraj, Rajkiran, Prakashraj, Manorama, Ambika, Seetha and Napoleon,? he said. According to him, the movie will have extensive computer graphics as much as 60%.

First scene of the movie was shot during the event with Napoleon, with the CM handling the camera, AVM Saravanan handling the clap board and Thiagarajan directing the same.

Speaking at the occasion, Rajkiran mentioned that he went through a series of emotions after reading the epic Ponnar Sankar. ?I received personal appreciation from the CM for my performance in Thavamai Thavamirundu, which was equivalent to 100 national awards. I will try my best to enhance my performance in this movie,? he declared. Napoleon, who addressed the gathering briefly, mentioned that he read the book in just about 4 days. He also revealed that the CM congratulated him for his Dasavatharam performance.

Prashanth expressed confidence that Ponnar Sankar will be in line with the Hollywood epic movie Troy. ?My dad helped me a lot to prepare for this movie. I will repay him by showing my full potential in the movie,? he assured.

Lyricist Vaali read out a poem on the occasion.

In his address, the CM praised all the artistes who are part of the venture and stated that Thiagarajan?s effort and hard work are visible. He hoped that Prashanth, who has already done a double role in Jeans, will do complete justice to his Ponnar Sankar roles. ?I always have the opinion that Prashanth is a promising star. This movie will reinstate his position in Tamil cinema and I will deliver a speech on the movie?s success event,? the CM opined.
