“When stories are being narrated to me, I would look for some kind of flaws in it. If it does not have any, then I would see if I had done such a story earlier and whether it would suit me. If I am satisfied with these parameters, then I give the go ahead immediately.”
“It is only because of Ajith’s blessings that I got a film like Subramaniapuram”
“I’m someone who does not hesitate to state facts. For instance, just as I say Vamanan will do well, I know for a fact that two of my future projects will flop. One will not last for more than a week in the theatres, while the other won’t last for more than a fortnight. People tell me not to say such things about my own projects. But then, whether I state it or not, what is bound to happen will happen.”
“I wanted to become a music director. I learnt to play the keyboard for nearly six years and was training in the studios with music director Deva and his son Srikanth Deva during my leisure time.”
