In every movie as an actor, I have worked as an assistant director, learning tur techniques and skills from various moviemakers. For any filmmaker, it's an advantage to be aware of every department. In this aspect, I find myself lucky to have witnessed success as a technician and actor. I thank producers, directors, and actors, who supported me in this journey of developing my skills. On this special occasion of my birthday, I am glad to announce my new avatar as a filmmaker with the movie Pichaikkaran 2. This will be a big-budgeted project and talks are going on with leading actresses to play the female lead role. The story premise will offer a great experience for the audience with the right mix of entertainment and emotions. We will be soon making announcements on the cast and crew of Pichaikkaran 2."
