Multistarrers, despite being successful in the north, is relatively a new concept as far as Tamil cinema is concerned. Trying to break the barrier is `Vaanam', a film which has a huge list of stars in its cast.

Silambarasan (STR), Bharath, Anushka, Prakash Raj, Sonia Agarwal, Vega, Santhanam and Saranya. And the list goes on. The man who has made a magic with all these actors is Krish, a popular Tollywood director.

In other words, Krish, who hogged the limelight in Telugu with `Vedam', the original version of `Vaanam', has wielded the megaphone for the Tamil remake too. "The script is universal and it can be made in any Indian language," sources say.

The movie produced by Ganesh of VTV Productions and Magic Box Pictures has been bagged by Dayanidhi Alagiri and his Cloud Nine. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja and all the songs from `Vaanam' are already hits.

"After the success of Thoonga Nagaram, Cloud Nine Movies would be distributing Vaanam. Top- class technicians like Yuvan, Nirav Shah (cinematography) and Antony (editing), are involved with film," says a press release from the producers.

It adds: "The association has just taken the project to the next level with the caliber they have. It's been a great pleasure to work with the huge star- cast. The talkie portions of the film have been completed, after the massive hit of the single song that was launched before the audio release".

Happy about `Vaanam', Simbu says, "I was awestruck when I saw Vedam, which had Allu Arjun in lead role. Immediately I wanted to remake the film in Tamil and the end product is here."

On his part, director Krish says it is a story that revolves around Pancha Bootham - five elements. "Simbu is the sky, Bharath air, Anushka water, Prakash Raj fire and Saranya the earth. Vaanam is all about how these five elements come together," he says.
