Tell us about the film's response.
Both the versions are getting good response from everyone. We are so happy for that. The mixture of Romance and Action worked big time.
Why did the film release got delayed?
Telugu version did not undergo any problems but it is the Tamil version that has got delayed constantly. Also, when we planned for a release, Naga Chaitanya's Premam released too. We waited and finally released our film.
How is the experience of working with Chay again?
Chay is same as a person. He is like my younger brother. I felt very comfortable directing him. Even when the film is experiencing problems for release, he waited patiently. Chay can now attempt mass action films now without any hesitations.
There is some criticism on Climax. Tell us about that
I ended the climax by giving it a commercial touch. That has become a huge discussion every where. We actually planned to shoot the climax with Montage shots but unfortunately it did not happen. But still many people are liking it.
Are you ready to continue making blilingual films?
I always wanted to make a film in two languages. No one finds fault with my making style and hence I will continue it.
Tell us about Dhanush film progress and your futute projects.
Dhanush's film is in progress. The project with Vikram is still in discussions.
Were you satisfied with the result of SSS?
I am very happy because the audiences have received the film very well. The film is getting some decent collections in both the languages.
