"I didn"t even dream that I would get such a wonderful start for my career," said debut film maker Pandiraj in tears.
There are enough reasons for his saying. His first movie Pasanga audio was launched by none other than the veteran singer Chevalier Dr M Balamuralikrishna and received by Kalaignani Kamal Hassan.
Padiraj says, "I ran from pillar to post for three years in search of a producer for my movie. When I narrated the storyline to Sasikumar, he didn"t even laugh and I assured him that the movie is a comic script! But he embraced me after I finished my narration. He didn"t even question me when I took five days extra to complete the shoot."
According to Pandiraj, even now he doesn't know the budget of the film.
