VEPPAM (Sega) to see its much-awaited release

Veppam (English: Heat) is an upcoming Indian Tamil action thriller written and directed by newcomer Anjana Ali Khan,[2] starring Nani, Karthik Kumar, Bindu Madhavi and Nithya Menen.
Director Anjana Ali Khan's debut venture 'Veppam', which will also be released simultaneously in Telugu as 'Sega', this Friday (29-July-2011), took nearly three years to shape up to what it is today.

Anjana says that people in the age-group of 18-29 years should be able to connect with her film.

The title of the movie is synonymous with the climate of Chennai. "One thing that we all keep complaining about is the heat and soaring temperatures in the city, also known as ‘Veppam’ in Tamil (‘Sega’ in Telugu)," the director explains.

Armed with a university gold medal, Anjana Ali Khan went into advertising as a copy writer, transitioned to making ad films, started her production house in 1997 and made lots of television commercials, music videos and corporate documentaries, some of which won awards.
When she felt that she wanted to tell a longer story, her struggle started. It took her seven years to make her first feature film, Veppam, in Tamil. During this period, she worked with Gautham Vasudev Menon on his film Vettaiyaadu Vilayaadu, as an associate director.

When his associate Anjana was ready with a 'good script' and was looking for a producer, her mentor Gautham Vasudev Menon readily came forward to fund the project, and the end-product 'Veppam' is now all set to hit the screens.

There are five sound tracks in this movie, which has been set to tune by Joshua Sridhar. It may be recalled that the audio of Veppam was release way back in January.
