Somehow the month of Aadi isn't considered very auspicious in the Tamil calendar and film-makers being as superstitious as ever, wouldn't start any new venture during the month.
Hence, 15 July (Sunday) being the last day of the month before Aadi, film-makers made sure that they started off with their new projects. It was a busy day in Tamil filmdom as three directors --- Shankar, Venkat Prabhu and Hari went ahead with their projects -- I, Biriyani and Singam 2 respectively. It must be said the trio are among the popular film-makers and are seen as directors with some sort of a golden touch.
Shankar's big budget film I stars Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead role while Venkat Prabhu's has Karthi and Richa Gangopadhyay as the lead pair.
On the other hand, Hari's sequel to his super hit Singam will see Suriya, Anushka and Hansika in prominent roles and he has ensured that most actors of the original will be seen in the second part.
