He has a unique vision of life and I think that comes across in his performances. He has a unique way og seeing life. And I think he is a gifted artist.”
Meanwhile, Sriram clarified that initially, he did offer the film to Saif Ali Khan but when things changed in the creation of the story. He asserted, “When I was looking at it, I was looking at a Hindi film, no Tamil version and all. I was thinking of Saif because I have worked with him in a couple of movies earlier. So, I thought it might be interesting. I met him and he liked the subject, he liked it very much.”
