Sibiraj, who is currently basking in the success of Naaigal Jaakirathai has shared his experience of working with the military trained dog. "The dog which took some time to get adjusted to the shooting atmosphere bit me a lot at the beginning but then gradually got adjusted to the ambience" revealed Sibiraj in a recent interview. Naaigal Jaakirathai is running successfully and has opened up to positive reviews. The Belgian Shepherd dog which has stolen the show as far as the movie is concerned was a bad dog to handle at the sets, the second protagonist of the film Sibi has said.
"After the dog bit me for a couple of times, I had to take the prescribed anti biotic shots which subsequently resulted in me having a bad fever. But then came the worst part, I had to act in some cold climatic conditions and in some rain sequences when I had fever" he added.
Also recalling how and where the director of Naaigal Jaakirathai narrated him the script, Sibi has said that the place where the story was narrated to him was a special one. "It was on my terrace where Shakti Soundar Rajan narrated me the story, it is a special place because Manivannan sir narrated the story of Amaidhi Padai in the same spot to my father. After listening to the story my father wasn't exactly excited to do the film, but since I was present their and had liked the story, I persuaded him to take up the project" he said.
Naaigal Jaakirathai which is produced by his father Sathyaraj is a comeback of sorts for Sibiraj as he had not done any films from the past 4 years before he chose to act in a film which has more importance for an animal than him as he is an animal lover in his real life and in fact had asked the directors to come up with a script that showcases an animal in the lead. Looks like Sibi's tactic paid off as the film is doing well at the box office so far.
