few excerpts of the chat with the crew of Ghajini
The character of Sanjay Ramasamy appealed to me intuitively
and the widely different portrayals for the character
made it very challenging for me. I have really learnt
a great deal in this film. I am also very happy with
the strong production values for the film and I am sure
it will be just as talked about as my Kakka
Kakka. I became a great fan
of Murugadas after watching his Ramana. I am indeed
very fortunate to work under him. His perfectionism
is breathtaking. For the climax action sequence, we
shot for 14 days under the guidance of Kanal Kannan
master. One has not had such an action scene so far.
will be a winner no doubt.
A R Murugadas:
told the story to 12 heroes but none of them agreed.
was the 13th hero and he immediately said yes. This
is my third film after Dina and Ramana. I have a strong
belief in my script. Surya also shared the conviction.
Dina and Ramana were different from each other and Ghajiniis on a totally new plane. Surya has lived
the character and blended well with it. I must also
mention the awesome talent of the heroines Asin
Their professionalism and dedication is out of the world.
I am very sure that Ghajini
will be a winner all the way. I directed the Telugu
remake of Ramana and it ran well. Therefore, superstar
Chiranjeevi wanted me to direct a film for him. I have
agreed to do the film only after proving that my success
in Tamil is not a flash in the pan. Ghajini
is my offering to the Tamil audience and I am positive
that they will like it too.
Salem A Chandrasekaran:
I have not spared any amount in making this film a gigantic
offering to the audience. For a few scenes, I had requested
special equipment from Mumbai. The daily rentals for
these ran to a few lakh rupees. I am sure this film
will be spoken of in the league of great blockbusters.
I also believe that this film will open new vistas for
me as a producer. The audio cassettes have done brisk
business and the film will be released shortly. The
entire crew has given cent percent contribution in making
the film glorious. It should appeal to both the masses
and the classes.
