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.
