In the recent times, there are lots of young filmmakers rocking in the industry. I have to prepare myself to compete with them. This film is yet to be titled and we have an excellent team of technicians. I have been an ardent fan of Santhosh Sivan from the time I watched his ‘Thalapathy’. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores music, Rajeevan is the art director and Anthony is editor. Brindha Saarathy pens dialogues. Samantha plays the female lead role.”
