There are enough reasons for his saying. His first movie Pasanga audio was launched by none other than the veteran singer Chevalier Dr M Balamuralikrishna and received by Kalaignani Kamal Hassan.
Padiraj says, "I ran from pillar to post for three years in search of a producer for my movie. When I narrated the storyline to Sasikumar, he didn"t even laugh and I assured him that the movie is a comic script! But he embraced me after I finished my narration. He didn"t even question me when I took five days extra to complete the shoot."
According to Pandiraj, even now he doesn't know the budget of the film.
