Thiru rues that his Azhagana Ponnuthan turned
out to be a damp squib due to Namitha. Thiru
said that Namitha refused to star in the film
after several scenes in the film were canned.
When he filed a complaint at the Producers’
Council, it was decided that Namitha should
complete the film.
However, the actress refused to accord full
co-operation. Thiru says that he had to modify
the story and the climax due Namitha’s
indifferent behavior. He adds that Namitha was
responsible for the huge losses that the producer
of Azhagana Ponnuthan had incurred. According
to Thiru, the climax was not what he had in
mind and film was cut short by 20 minutes.
