Vivek Oberoi: new prince of the South
Vivek is incredibly liked in Tamil Nadu, especially after he adopted the Devanampattinam village near Cuddalore, which was supposedly badly hit by the Tsunami in 2004.
‘Prince’ hits theatres on April 9
Producer Kumar Taurani is aiming high on ‘Prince’ and wants to cash in on the film, as he has plans to release the Vivek starrer in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Interestingly, the film is slated to hit theatres on April 9th.
Excited and eagerly awaiting the release, Kumar recently stated, “We started the promotional work much earlier. We showed the first promo during Ajab Prem... so that we and the audience could connect with Prince when it is released.”
He also conveyed that they would cross 1,000-plus prints, as ‘Prince’ is releasing across the globe. Kumar stated, “We are going big time.”
Prince – an absolute entertainer
‘Prince’, traces the story of a thief who loses his memory one fine morning. When he wakes up, he is forced to realize that his life is at risk without really knowing the reason why. Starring in the movie with Vivek is Nandana Sen, Aruna Shields and Neeru Singh.
Responding to the question about whether the movie is being dubbed in Tamil and Telugu, Kumar stated, “We are dubbing the film in Tamil and Telugu and we are really going for a very good quality. We are working hard on it. Every thing, be it music or songs, we are releasing simultaneously and we are also promoting it well in those territories.”
Surprisingly, this is the first time that Kumar is associating his name with a film. “See we are two brothers. We have one company, TIPS. Till Race we used to make films together. Then we thought if we make two divisions, we will be able to concentrate on making more than one film at a time. Ramesh (Taurani) gave his name to Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and I made this one,” stated Kumar.
Kumar Taurani further elucidated that he is new to the production business, as earlier he had handled only music, marketing and promotion, distribution and not shooting. However, for the first time for ‘Prince’, Taurani has been fully involved from the beginning.
The title of the film suggests it’s a typical Bollywood film with all the ingredients of romance, suspense and comedy.
Responding to the question whether the audience would like ‘Prince’, Kumar responded, “See this is very much a Bollywood film filled with all the masalas. This is an absolute entertainer and primarily targets Asians across the globe.”
