After the launch, Mani Ratnam said, "Nazir is still the same today as he was many years ago when he worked for me. He bared the entire brunt of my work whenever there was a problem even in the direction department and we would lay the blame on the production side! For that I owe him an apology. I am very happy that he has turned producer today and is making a film like Kalavani with new directors and new actors. This shows his love for cinema. His success is like my own success to me."
The audio CD was received by director Sasikumar in the presence of Trisha, Saranya, Parthiban, Na Muthukumar, RK Selvamani, hero Vimal, heroine Oviya ( debutants), director Vijay and new director Sargunam who debuts with this film. The music is by SS Kumaran who returns after his debut in Poo.
The interesting part of the function was that, each speaker was called upon to recount some tale of petty thievery, fraud or something naughty they have done in their lives, in keeping with the theme of the title of the film.
Director Mani Ratnam, who rarely attends film functions, has launched the audio of Kalavani on Monday at Sathyam Cinemas. The film is produced by S Nazir, a former production executive of Mani Ratnam.
