Excerpts from his interview
Q: On working with Arun Kumar for third time…
A: After we did two films, we became very close. Arun is like family to me. He had approached many actors in vain and finally I told him we would work together. Hopefully after Sindhubaadh, he will work with others. He is a phenomenal talent.

Q: What is Sindhubaadh all about?
A: It is about a beautiful emotional connect between husband and wife. It is about a man, who goes in search of his wife abducted by a gang.

Q: Tell us about sharing screen with your son Surya?
A: Arun was keen to cast Surya in the film after watching him in Naanum Rowdy Thaan. We coaxed him a lot and convinced him. He has done a wonderful job.

Q: How was it to join hands with Yuvan Shankar Raja again?
A: He is a wonderful music composer. There is a soul in his songs. One can easily connect oneself with his numbers. His background score in Sindhubaadh is a big plus.

Q: Anjali is a spontaneous performer. Tell us about her role in the movie.
A: I essay the role of a person who is short of hearing. Anjali’s character has to speak loudly in the film. She is a person who speaks loudly in real life. Whole story revolves around her.
