In an interview to a Tamil tabloid, Simbu pledged that
Kettavan would unleash his true potential as a star .
He further stated that the movie is based on the theme
that only a man's love to a girl is true and the woman's
love is always self-centered. Well, that theme is not
quite unheard of for his movies.
'Kamal once revealed that there are three faces to every
human being. First being, what the world sees, second
what he sees of himself and the third being what he really
is. Kettavan would be an experiment based on this philosophy',
Simbu revealed matter-of-factly. 'Which means, I have
shown all my three faces for this movie', he added before
Lekha, an SS Music VJ pairs up with Simbu for Kettavan.
