When the correspondent asked him to reveal the name of the heroes, the ace comedian replied in his typically tone, "Empu... Namma vandi smootha odarathu pudikkaliya… News poderennu comedy pannidatha Pangali… (Hello brother, don't you like my smooth survival in the field? Don't try to make my life as comedy!). I'm not joking. It is true that after the news came out, I heard that hundreds of phone calls were exchanged between various circles. Most of them could not believe the news. Some of the big heroes had lost their sleep. They could not digest the appearance of Shreya, the numero uno actress of the industry dancing with me!"
How could you got the dates of Shreya, the actress became very costly after the release of Rajini's Sivaji?
Athu oru periya kathai pangali... (It is a big story brother...) The Producer of the film Manickam Naarayanan approached Shreya to appear in a song along with me. Without any conditions, the actress accepted for that and Manickam has paid her huge is a different matter. But no doubt, it is a great decision of Shreya to accept for the offer.
After performing with you, Shreya lost some big offers. Do you aware about that?
"Amappu... But mind you, she has not acted as my pair. She is just dancing with me in a comical song – that too not romance genre... for just 4 and half minute. Please remember the appearance of KR Vijaya in Sarvar Sundaram along with Nagesh. She was the queen of smile then and paired with legendary MGR and Shivaji Ganesan continuously. But she appeared in comedian Nagesh Sir's film as her lover (one side). MGR, the King of Tamil cinema was never commented but blessed the actress by giving more chances in his next films..."
How did Shreya feel when dancing with you?
She is really a pucca professional and when I asked her about the decision to dance with me, she told that she was also an ardent fan of mine! She coolly replied, "Vadivelu Sir, I'm very much happy and take this as an opportunity to act with you..." – What a generous lady she is! I really appreciated her mental strength and bold decision in the field which runs by superstitious!
