It was a delight for the 50 couples who were
selected for the Mayakkam Enna contest conducted
by behindwoods to watch the film and have
an interaction with Dhanush, Richa Gangopadhyay
and cameraman Ramji. While Dhanush looked
very simple in a white shirt and jeans, Richa
was resplendent wearing a striking red-colored
tops and jeans.
The trio answered a volley of questions thrown
at them by the winners of the contest. Dhanush
answered most of the questions as they were
aimed at him and for several questions his
answers had long explanations.
He proved to be a real star as he took criticisms
in his stride just like praises and accolades.
Dhanush’s simple demeanor and polite
manners had the audiences captivated. He also
patiently posed for photographs with the winners.
The star also took the opportunity to reiterate
that he owed his success entirely to his brother
Selvaraghavan. “If not for Selva and
his excellent directorial capabilities, I
would not have reached where I am today”,
When someone in the audience wanted to know
if Dhanush was a trained photographer, the
star replied in negative. He agreed that his
knowledge in photography was very limited
but another character – Sundar –
was a real and accomplished photographer and
he learnt a few tips from him for the film.
To another question on why there was no dubbed
version of Mayakkam Enna in Telugu, Dhanush
replied that there is a possibility of remaking
The star also reiterated that directing movies
is his goal and writing lyrics, singing and
acting are just ancillaries. He made it clear
that he would direct a film soon.
