"That is because I am always independent minded and did not want to approach people on my own. I was content in doing the work allotted to me rather than scouting for producers. I thought my talents should fetch me work. Thankfully my three friends have helped me and they are now producing this film under the banner Nenadha Creations". They have left everything to me and said they would back me fully in this project. I am taking up a serious issue for the story, but believe me it is a hundred percent commercial film. I have space for lot of commercial ingredients in the script' says Gopi.
