They say that Vivek did Rakta Charitra and RGV took him because he wanted to release it nationwide. Since the story had AP’s backdrop Telugu people got connected. To connect the Tamil crowds, RGV got in Suriya. Now, the same is the case with ‘Rai’. Given the subject, the Karnataka crowds will accept it. The Telugus will also take it because Vivek did the character Pratap Ravi in Rakta Charitra. Sources say RGV is also planning to have a Tamil actor so that Kollywood also accepts it.
