"I feel immensely guilty for speaking the truth..."
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
March 26, 2007
Director R K Selvamani in Kollywood has a penchant for portraying contemporary issues in his films which eventually turned into blockbusters in terms of collection. Be it captain Prabhakaran or pulan visaranai, his films dealt with issues that were prevalent during those times and hence the audience was able to relate to the films much better.
Selvamani had directed a film called ‘Kutra Pathirikkai’ based on the murder of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. This film was produced by Ravi Yadav and had stars like Roja, Rahaman, Ramki and Ramya Krishnan in the lead roles. This film was caught in the web of censors and finally was allowed to be released after a fifteen year battle.

While talking to reporters on the occasion of special screening of the film, director Selvamani was visibly moved. He said, “My eyes go damp when I think of my fifteen years exile. It has become a grave mistake because I dared to speak the truth. I fought in the courts after censor rejected certification for my film. This delay has altered the course of my life drastically. I feel immensely guilty for considering making a film for my friend Ravi Yadav and have brought upon a state of life sentence on him. I have not criticized any political party in my film. But censors have expressed their antipathy without even watching the film. For Roja, this is her second film which is getting released after her 150th film”.
