Earlier, while talking to BollywoodLife.com, veteran actor Paresh Rawal had opened up on working with Suriya in the film. He said, "Suriya is a fantastic co-artiste. He is a megastar, but he is humble, rooted, grounded and down-to-earth. And he is fully prepared when he comes on set. He knows his dialogues, nuances and is thoroughly prepared. He was very patient with me. He knew I was going to fumble with my Tamil dialogues, but he was never agitated or anxious. The unit made me feel very comfortable, and it felt like I was working in Bollywood."
The actor had also revealed how they are very particular with the filming process. "They are extremely professional people. I wanted a few lines in English, but she was like no Pareshji, speak in Tamil. They are taskmasters. The unit never fumbled or stumbled. Sudha is always in control, and her team is like well-oiled machinery. There is no shouting, as it is always in control," the actor had said.
