Before Jiiva makes his Bollywood debut with ‘83, he will be having his Gorilla and Gypsy released in quick succession here in Kollywood. The first single track from Gypsy titled 'Very Very Bad' was launched on Tuesday evening at a press meet in Chennai. Jiiva and the director of the film Raju Murugan headed the gathering which wasn’t attended by the film’s composer Santhosh Narayanan and debutante heroine Natasha Singh. Lyricist Yugabharathi stated in a lighthearted tone that the film’s producer may be required to bail them out of legal trouble after the film’s release, due to its boldly controversial political tone.
Jiiva said that he plays a folk singer who travels throughout the country; after a point he turns into a rebel singer and fights for a cause. He stated that he accepted Gypsy at a time when he was getting feedback that he wasn’t taking up strong content-based films like Raam, Ee and Katradhu Tamizh. Gypsy has been shot all over India and will be a heroic story with romance and politics, said Raju Murugan (who is known for his communist and socialist leanings). A horse named Che is also a part of the film along with Jiiva. Gypsy also promises to be a celebration of nature.
Jiiva added that most of the production houses would hesitate to produce a bold, daring film like Gypsy; he included his father’s Super Good Films also in this list. Read More
