JK Enum Nanbanin Vaazhkai (English: My friend JK’s Life) 2015 Tamil film written and directed by Cheran. It stars Sharwanand, Nithya Menen, while Prakash Raj and Santhanam play supporting roles. It is being simultaneously made in Telugu as Yemito Ee Maaya. The film is being produced by Dream Theatres who earlier produced films like Autograph, Azhagai Irukkirai Bayamai Irukkirathu and Muran. The film, which is said to be a youth entertainer, features songs by G. V. Prakash Kumar and film scored by Siddharth Vipin. After long dragging, the director released the film through his brainchild startup called “C2H”, in March 2015. The film is currently available in DVD as well as paid online streaming.
Sharwanand had dubbed for his character in Tamil. As part of the promotion Cheran initiated a project named JK Fest 2013, in which college students from Tamil Nadu could participate. Students were asked to visualise and use their creativity to enact the songs of JK Enum Nanbanin Vaazhkai without knowing the film’s story. Cheran revealed that the film ‘JK Enum Nanbanin Vazhkai’ will be released on Internet, DVD and satellite, on the same day of its theatrical release. It is worth mentioning that no other Tamil film has been released in this manner. Cheran added that by releasing the film across all media on the same day, piracy can be curbed. However, the theatrical release did not happen; the film was instead released as a direct-to-video film in March 2015.
