After the success of Thirumalai, director Ramana joins hands with Vijay again for his next Aathi, which is a remake of the Telugu hit Atanokkade.

Vijay has always relished doing remakes and movies like Ninaithen Vandhai, Priyamanavale and Gilli have done wonders to his career.

His father and veteran director S A Chandrasekhara is producing Aathi.

The pairing of Vijay-Trisha is highly popular following their success of Gilli and Thirupachi. Sai Kumar, who has made strides as a hero in Telugu and Kannada films, tries his hand as a villain.

‘It’s a nice feeling to be part of a film involving Vijay, Vidyasagar. I have done my best to dish out a different brand’, Ramana says.

On the difficulty involved in doing remakes, Ramana says, ‘when doing remakes, one has to meet the expectations already generated. Anything short of that will not be accepted. That is the only pressure but it has only made me sit tight and do one better.’

Speaking about the film, Vijay says, ‘I play college student in Aathi. The movie has good action, romance and sentiments to attract my fans. Trisha gives me company in the movie’.

The supporting cast includes Prakash Raj, Vijayakumar, Nasser, Manivannan, Livingston and Seetha, among others.

Slated for a release this Pongal, the movie has couple of songs shot in Switzerland.
