Q: How did the opportunity to act in House Owner came?
A: One day, I got a call from Lakshmi Ramakrishnan. She narrated the story to me and briefed me about my character (an old man). It was appealing and I decided that I should not miss the opportunity. Rarely an actor would get such solid roles. Convinced by the story, I chose to act in it.

Q: Your rapport with filmmaker Vettrimaran?
A: We are good friends. He knows me well. I acted in his films Aadukalam and Vada Chennai. They gave wonderful opportunities for me to prove my acting skills. I am not part of Vettrimaran’s next Asuran. He knows how to handle me well.

Q: Do you want to direct movies in future?
A: Certainly not. I never had such intentions. I want to do what my filmmaker expect me to do on screen. I want to act in films that have a strong message for audience.

Q: Tell us about your passion for organic farming?
A: I am involved in organic farming near Hosur on a two acre land. It gives me immense satisfaction.

Q: Will you venture to politics in future?
A: Politics is not my cup of tea. I read about political development and never missed an opportunity to cast my vote in any election.
