Filmmaker in Tamil Nadu often avoided clashes with Rajinikanth's
films. Not only in Kollywood, but also in Telugu and Kannada film
industries, many refuse to release their films when the superstar's
movies hit the screens. But Thiru, who is directing Naan Sigappu Manithan,
stands different from the rest as he is releasing his Vishal starrer film with
Rajini's Kochadaiiyaan in April.
Naan Sigappu Manithan and Kochadaiiyaan will
be releasing on April 11. The director has said that he is not
competing with the superstar's flick, but they had locked in the
date even before the makers of Rajinikanth's film finalised the
date. At present, he is only concentrating on his film's completion
than worrying about the clash.
"I'm not going to compete with any film and nor am I nervous to
release my film with Kochadaiiyaan. I'm only bothered
about handing over the first copy of my film to my producers in
advance. I'm only concerned about finishing the film on time," Thiru told IANS.
Thiru claims that he has been working with the deadline in mind
and he wants to deliver the product on promised date. He says that
it has kept him on toes. "My last film got delayed due to several
reasons. I struggled to see it release in cinemas. It was nice for
a change to be working against a deadline. Working towards a
scheduled release date kept me on my toes throughout," he
Naan Sigappu Manithan, which features Lakshmi Menon in
the female lead role, is the story of a man suffering from
narcolepsy, a neurological sleeping disorder.
