Director Lokesh Kanakaraj's words about the film and actor Fahad Faasil are getting attention now. Lokesh was speaking at an event held as part of the audio launch of the film.
 
“Kamal Sir knew from the beginning how much screen presence there would be, how much pull factor there would be, and how much space there would be. He also knew how much space there would be for supporting artists.
 
This picture has a lot of scoring space. Each scene can be scored by different actors. Kamal Sir was enjoying all that. End of the day, ultimately the movie should be good. That was the significance of that.
 
Not only the hero but also the producer of the film plays an important role in this. So much has been invested, so the film has to be a hit. By the time the film was written, it was clear how much space each one needed. Everyone knew it. It came just like that because everyone who starred in the film is a big fan of Kamal Sir. Fahad Faasil, Sethu Anna, Suriya and Narain. Kamal sir is an inspiration to everyone and a reason for coming to this film.
 
When I saw all the pictures of Fahad Sir, I thought he was a reserved and very serious person. But not so. Within the first ten days of the film, he started calling me Mama and Machi. He also has a good space in the cinema.
 
Having worked with Sethu, they had high hopes for me. Suriya sir was very surprised. I went and told the story, he liked the character and immediately said OK;” said Lokesh Kanakaraj.
