Anniyan is said to be the costliest film ever made in South India.

I don't know all that. This film is like any of my previous films. As the cost of everything required to make a film has gone up, the cost of the film rose as well. I am confident of making a profit from the film.

Vikram has several different faces in the film. Does he enact different characters?

Only in the songs have we given him different get-ups. But his role has several dimensions. I am not going to say anything more.

Why keep the story a secret? It will not remain a secret after the first show…

I want to keep it a secret till then. If I start revealing the script from the moment I start making a movie, the story will be jaded by the time it hits the screens. Now I can retain the freshness, at least until the first day.

Why did you choose Vikram as the hero?

When I signed him, Pitamaghan (Vikram's National Award winning film) hadn't released yet. I don't look at actors that way. I had actors like Arjun, Prashanth, Prabhu Deva and even Kamal Hassan play leading roles in my films.

I selected Vikram because he has the image of an action hero, in addition to being a performer. I needed a performer who could play the role of the action hero.
