Director Raja, dubbed Jayam Raja after his debut film Jayam, would like to revert to his original name – Mohan Raja. The highly successful Tamil film featured his brother Jayam Ravi. Raja is currently awaiting the release of his film Thani Oruvan, and a recent press release on the film also used the name Mohan Raja, and not Jayam Raja. Director Vijay had similarly reverted to his original name. Reportedly, actor Jayam Ravi might also change his name to Mohan Ravi.
Thani Oruvan is likely to be Kollywood’s last film to be shot on film. Subsequent films will be shot on digital. Thani Oruvan stars Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara in the lead, with Arvind Swami, Ganesh Venkatraman, Mugdha Godse and Vamsi Krishna forming the supporting cast. The director, who has a lot of remake films to his credit, is said to have drafted his own script for the film. Produced by AGS Entertainment, this film is scheduled for a grand audio launch on July 15.
