The actor has got a few valid points to support on his choice of roles. He says, "It is very difficult to come across a good script, that too in the combination of a good director and good production house.

I Read Intensity Of The Role
He claims, "I don't read too much into the footage of the character I play but read too much into the intensity of the role I play. I push myself to display different in every role I play in each film."
Hoping For The Best
Ganesh adds, "I am sure this will mark my presence among the masses. As my name and face becomes house hold, I will get scripts that offers me the lead."
I've Adapted To Tamil Culture
"Though I was born and brought up in Mumbai, I have immersed myself in the culture and the language of Tamil Nadu. I am proud to be a major part of this film Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru," he says.
Instigated Much Required Fire Inside Me
