What they say…
Producer-hero P. Ravi Rajesh: It was my brother who wanted to enter the film industry. I was running a travel agency in the Gulf and I came to Chennai because of my brother. His friend who has directed this film, Sanjeevan, told us a story that we both liked. He suggested that I play the hero for which he wanted me to grow a beard and moustache. I did what he said. I am now waiting for the audience response.
Director C.M. Sanjeevan: These days, many short films are being made into full-length features. Valiyudan Oru Kadhal is also based on a short film, Thalaikavasam, which I did a couple of years ago. My next is Nizhal Thodarum.
Music director J.K. Selvaah: I initially scored music for films, TV serials and documentaries under the name Janakiraj. I am at present working on Kizhakku Sevakkaiyile, Cycle Company, Chennai Gramam, Chepaukam Nama Kathai and Kalla Chirippazhagi. I am receiving positive feedback on the songs in Valiyudan Oru Kadhal and feel people would also love my re-recording.
