Thota Tharani on Sivaji

AVM productions and Shankar wanted the best technicians for Sivaji. Naturally, National Award winning art director Thota Tharani was roped in for the prestigious project. Interestingly, Thota Tharani also worked on Kamal Haasan's Dasavatharam. In an exclusive interview with Shobha Warrier, Thota Tharani describes the making of the amazing sets of the most anticipated film, with sketches showing his work in progress. Here goes:

As I have been working in all the AVM productions, Mr Guhan of AVM asked me to work in Sivaji too. I have worked for more than five films of Shankar like Mudalvan, Indian and Nayak. Though Shankar's films are 100% commercial, he takes extraordinary interest in the minute details that go into a film.
