Paruthi Veeran is running to packed houses and the crew is obviously excited about its performance. Meanwhile it was found that an unreleased version of the film is lying in a corner, totally unattended in Prasad Labs. When the matter was probed, it was revealed that
director Ameer had shot a different version of the film targeting awards and international film festivals bereft of the usual commercial elements.
While narrating about this, Ameer admitted the existence of such a version of the films and said, "It is true that one version of Paruthi Veeran is at Prasad Labs due to some problems. It is likely to get resolved soon when it would be sent to international film festivals. I had shot this version targeting a wider audience". When Ameer was quizzed if Surya would feature in his next film Kannabiran, he said that if people close to an actor do not interfere in the making of a film, he can make any actor act with perfect ease.
