Thol Thirumavalavan, the politician turned hero, has now realized very well, the risks and difficulties of the heroes in the tinsel world. To put it in his own words, 'it is not an easy job to survive in the dream world.'After the releasing of the trailer of his much awaited debut movie Anbuthozhi, Thiruma spoke in the most convincing manner. He said that Anbuthozhi is not a "usual" film.
He aadi, ''This movie talks something about the migrated Tamils of Eazham. Yes...the story revolves around the Eazham war. Everybody may return after hearing the name of Eazham. Just leave those selfish people. We, the Tamil people should be united and show our support to our bretherns. In this film I'm appearing in the role of a warrior for the cause of migrated Tamils. Since there is no difference between my real and reel political roles, I didn't face any difficulty in performing the same in the movie also. After seeing the trailer, poet Arivumathi told me that I appeared a bit shy in some scenes. Maybe in some of the scenes, the first time camera shyness might get exposed. But I never felt fear at any stage of the shooting. Fear is different from shyness. The Tamil culture allows shyness even to a male. But it blames the persons who fear facing challenges. I'm very proud to say that I'm fearless in any kind of war field. "
He added ''In the earlier days, I couldn't understand the 'language' and activities of this tinsel world. But now I have learned a lot and realized the problems a hero faces in the industry. In the initial days I thought that the actors earn more money without any hard work and pain. But it is not true. I found all my preconceived notions about the film world wrong after experiencing a few days with the unit.
'Wherever I go abroad, many of our brethren in those countries enquire eagerly about this film. Thanks to the media, particularly the web media journalists, for creating such a hype for the movie even abroad. There is another reason for the big publicity of the movie. It is the heroine Preethi Varma. One couldn't close his or her eyes without reading her news in the media. This film gained that much of publicity due to her personal affairs. On this occasion, I would like to assure one thing. If this film becomes a hit, I will continue to stay in the field as a professional hero!'' -Thirumavalavan concluded his speech amidst the sounds of huge claps. Initially Thirumavalavan released the trailer, and Nagravi of 'ASE film company' has received the same.
