This star-studded event also witnessed coming together of eminent personalities A.R. Murugadoss, Mysskin, K.S. Ravikumar, Gowtham Menon, actress Sneha, Actor Jeyam Ravi, his dad Editor Mohan and many others.
Ajmal who shot to fame with his stunning debut in Anjathey sheds his tough guy image and poses as a cool happy-go-lucky lad while Bangalore based Rupa makes her debut starring opposite him as female lead in this movie.
Addressing the gathers, K.S. Ravikumar said, “ The film"s title 'Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru" has more relevance for him as I was filming for Padaiyappa. Sivaji Ganeshan happened to be a chain smoker and later turned to be a great hater of it. I was really stressed out on the shooting spots and couldn"t smoke as he was there on the sets.
When I headed for a store room to smoke, another person would have already started smoking. He"s none other than our Rajnikanth. As we move outside together, Sivaji sir would sense the smell and yell at us. Luckily, we would blame our make-up artist standing beside us. First we were almost 'Thiru Thiru" and later got 'Thuru Thuru"..."
Director Gowtham Menon wasn"t an exception as he shared his moment in the context of title, “While I was shooting for Vettaiyadu Vilayadu on the second day, it was a scene where Kamal Hassan rescues Jyothika from committing suicide. He enacted the sequence, but I wanted some more improvisation. As I requested for another shot, he indeed asked me to perform it. My nerves merely froze as I was looking 'Thiru Thiru" at him and later he himself delivered another take with 'Thuru Thuru" that was astounding..."
Padmashree Kamal Haasan came up on the dais uttering, “Everyone over here expressed their 'Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru" experiences. Fine! if they all have gone through it, even I have one. While I was shooting together with Sivaji Ganeshan sir for Thevar Magan, I requested the film"s director to go for another take as I felt Ganeshan sir would do better. But, the ace actor heeded to what I discussed.
I was starring in perplexed moods 'Thiru Thiru", but within fraction of seconds, he accomplished the shot 'Thuru Thuru". I want to correct Gowtham"s statement regarding re-takes. I never look down on any filmmakers as they enact certain sequences if they"re looking out for perfection."
Adding more, he said “I am so happy that Nandini has done a fantabulous job.. Satyam Cinemas and Real Image have elevated the standard of Tamil Cinema. This is 'Picture Perfect" for Future Cinema. There are more groups roaming around the town opposing 'Satellite Channels". But I am sure; no one can stop the growth of electronic and digital media."
Finally, actress Nandini in high-spirits said, “If I am here today, it"s all because of my family members who have extended their earnest supports. All credit goes to my mentor Priya. V who took so much care in heeding to my requests… I am not sure whether Kamal Haasan remembers the occasion where he felicitated me with Gold Medal at the film institute. Today I feel more elated for the ace actor has graced the occasion showering his blessings..."
Satyam Cinemas CEO Swaroop Reddy together with Real Image Jaya Chandra welcomed the gathering.
