Award winning director Jayaraj is getting ready for the release of his big budget movie Veeram. It is one among his series on Navarasa. In an interview with a leading magazine, Jayaraj said that actor Mohanlal was the primary reason for him to begin his ambitious Navarasa project. Jayaraj said that he had wished to make a film on Mohanlal with the background of rain in its different dimensions.
Even the recording of songs for the project was completed. Rain could project any emotion, but that project didn’t take off. Jayaraj said that later he felt it was not easy to capture different emotional dimensions of rain in one film. Thus came the Navarasa series which captures rain in its different avatars.
