Vastavam web: Vivek Oberoi is making his Tamil film debut with “Vivegam” and director Siva said the actor is the perfect choice for the movie as he is a powerful and intense performer.Oberoi will play the main antagonist in the film, which also stars Ajith Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan.”Vivek Oberoi is a powerful actor. When I conceived this character, I wanted an intense actor to essay the role. From the production side, they suggested Vivek Oberoi since he has an international look, knows Tamil and he likes Ajith sir a lot,” Siva told.
“Vivegam” marks director Siva’s third consecutive collaboration with Ajith after two successful box-office hits such as “Veeram” and “Vedalam.” The director said he was initially hesitant about pitching the script to Ajith since he had undergone a knee surgery back then and the role demanded a significant physical transformation.Siva said Ajith’s decision to do high-octane stunt sequences without using a body double surprised the film’s unit.
“It was very challenging to perform and shoot a motorcycle chase during the night and that too in such extreme weather conditions.” Siva said Kajal, who has been paired with Ajith for the first time and plays his wife in the film, is a fantastic actor.The music of the film has been composed by “Kolaveri Di” fame music director Anirudh Ravichander.Talking about the composer, Siva said, “Anirudh is like a fully charged battery He is a rock star, a true wizard. He can churn out a folk song like ‘Aaluma Doluma,’ and a Western like ‘Surviva’ that sets the bar high.”
