What they say…

Producer R. Muralitharan: Besides producing Aaru Chakkara Kuthirai, I have played the villain in it. The story revolves around the day-to-day lives of commuters travelling on a bus. The film has come out well and I am sure of its success.

Director Senthil Swaminathan: I should thank Babu Iqbal of Thuyavan Pictures, as he was the one who introduced me to K. Bhagyaraj under whom I worked for some time before joining directors Karthik Kumar, Durai Govindharaj, Vijay Prakash and Sundara Kumaran. After working for 15 years under several directors, I am now doing Aaru Chakkara Kuthirai. Cameraman Sai Nandha has done a great job and music director Jean Huret has composed six beautiful songs.

Hero Jai Sathya: I am from Thiruchengodu and acting is new to me. I just carried out whatever the director told me. I also thank my co-star Abinitha for giving me some acting tips. All the songs in the film are melodious and I hope the audience enjoys them.

Music director Jean Huret: I have scored the music for documentaries and telefilms and got awards for Arumbu and Bandh. I studied in the Tamizhisai College and did my doctorate in music therapy from Colombo University. This is my first Tamil film for the big screen. My first album was Jeetho India in 2003 for the World Cup cricket. I have scored the music for films in other languages. Director Senthil explained the situations for the songs and gave me full freedom to work on the tunes. It was great working with him.
