Only the teaser was enough to draw peerless attention, and Raja Rani continues to hold so much of tempting suspense about itself. Meanwhile what's cooking at the sets of 'Raja Rani'? This is what director Atlee had to say. "There is a special rapport between Arya and Nayanthara, beyond just the on screen chemistry. The two share a special friendship. Arya calls Nayanthara, Nayan, while she calls him Johnny.
The two are a pleasure to watch, as they share, care, goad and inspire each other." We also got the director to open up on the movie, and got a glimpse of what the story will be. Atlee said "Hero and heroine get married at a church, in a sequence that's dream like. But both feel that something is out of place and are not able to put their finger on what went wrong. A few days into marriage and they realize that what went wrong was the marriage itself. This is where Nazriya and Jai enter the screen. How the lives of all of them is altered, is what makes the story of 'Raja Rani'. But I am not divulging anything beyond!" and laughs. Atlee, who entered the tinsel town as an associate to director AR Murugadoss, later worked as assistant to director Shankar, in 'Enthiran'. 'Raja Rani', starring Arya, Nayanthara, Jai and Nazriya, is the debut venture of Atlee, as an independent director.
