I never expected an offer to direct 'Chandramukhi.' It happened and brought me glory.
— P. Vasu
Every heroine aspires to do a role like that of Soundarya in 'Apthamithra' when they work with me.
After I saw 'Katha Parayumbol,' I agreed to do the Tamil adaptation of the film.
There is a successful formula for every actor. At the same time, I also know that a film will not be successful if you satisfy only the fans of a particular actor.
When you have a popular hero in your film, you have to think of what the masses expect from him. You have to portray the hero in such a way that they should adore him.
I expect 'Paramasivan' to be a big hit because I have given the screenplay a fresh approach.
There was no heroism in 'Manichitrathazhu' but there will be heroism in 'Chandramukhi.'
I share a good rapport with Rajnikanth for I have worked with him in 'Panakkaran,' 'Mannan' and 'Uzhaipali' before.
If the director has a story, he will go directly to the hero. If I have a big hero in hand today, any big banner or corporate will come to me. But if I say I have a good story, they will ask if I have a hero.
A jolly feel good film with Vadivelu playing the comedian along with Rajni at his humourous best is 'Chandramukhi.'
The success of a film depends on the screenplay, and nothing else.
My desire is to work with youngsters, and I want them to know me.
I enjoyed shooting 'Chandramukhi' so much that I would not say it was a relief when the shooting got over.
If an artist like Rajnikanth does a film like 'Manichitrathazhu,' it will be a failure.
Billa' was inspired by Hindi hit 'Don.'
Rajinikanth is a man of perfection and he knows what to give his audiences.
In most of my stories, I give a lot of importance to heroines. My heroines are not just glamour dolls.
The director's job is like a teacher's, and I feel a teacher should not have any doubts about the subject.
Even after nine flops, an actor will get his tenth film. But, if a director gives a flop after nine hits, he will not get another film. That is the way the industry functions.
I make films according to the taste of the audience.
