A special event on the Mani Ratnam-directed Raavanan was held in Chennai recently. Priyamani, Vikram, Karthik, Prabhu, Vairamuthu, AR Rahman and others participated in the event. In an effort to introduce the film, actor Karthik and Priyamani held an interview session.
To a question on whether the film is an inspiration of Ramayana, Vikram said that it has traces of Ramayana, Mahabharata and Silappadhigaram. When asked if he is the Raavanan, Vikram replied that it is his pet name in the film.
Vairamuthu read out the lyrics that he had penned for the movie and AR Rahman sang it on stage much to the delight of the audience.
