Director Raja Murugan feels he has opened new doors for offbeat
films in the Tamil filmdom with his forthcoming directorial debut
He says as a filmmaker, it's the appreciation of the audience that
matters to him more than film's business.
Cuckoo, a love story of two blind characters, features
Dinesh and Malavika Nair in the lead roles.
"When I make a film, I want it to be loved and embraced by the
audience. Money, power and everything else come next for me," Murugan told reporters here on Tuesday (February 19).
"My biggest reward for Cuckoo will be the response of
the audience. I feel more doors should open for films like this. I
feel I have opened new doors through my film and that's my biggest
happiness," he added.
He spoke at the audio launch of Cuckoo, which was
graced by Kamal Hassan and Surya.
Murugan said Kamal's work encourages people to make good films.
"I would like to extend my gratitude to Kamal Hassan sir for being
present with us. He is the spiritual mentor of so many filmmakers
like me of this generation. It is through his craft that we
continue to learn many things. His work encourages us to make good
films," he said.
Jointly produced by Fox Star Studios and The Next Big Films, the
film is slated for summer release.
