experience with AVM
proud of my association with a legendary company like AVM
for Tirupathy. When I was new to Chennai, I used to frequent
AVM and stand in front of the studios longing to visit the
place. I bribed a production in charge ten rupees one day
and got myself into the studios. Later, AVM invited me to
direct a movie for them. It is a pleasure to work with them
and I like the way they work. They are tremendously organized.
Gowtham Menon, Ameer, and Bala. Who would you want to be associated
I like his movies and the way he portrays sentiments and human
emotions. My movies have those two but with a commercial touch.
I wouldn’t mind working as an assistant for Ameer.
project with Vijay was shelved for some reason?
is a common phenomenon in the profession. I worked with Vijay
for Thirupachi and Sivakasi and both turned out to be super
hits. We also had plans for another movie which could not
take off due to several reasons including Vijay’s prior
commitments. We are planning for another venture probably
a tabloid recently, there was a mention of Vijay wanting Gautam
Menon to add up a few scenes from your movies like Thirupachi
and Sivakasi for their latest venture. Your take on this?
is a mass hero and he has a responsibility to satisfy crores
of fans. I don’t see anything wrong in Vijay mentioning
such a thing since those movies were commercially well received.
Besides, there are lots of compromises involved in making
a movie and it is quite acceptable for the director and actor
to have certain priorities.
