What they say…
Producer-director Selvabharathi Kumarasamy: I have produced eight films till now and three of actor Vijay’s — Ninaithaen Vanthai, Priyamanavale and Vasigara. After seeing Pasanga produced by Sasi Kumar, I decided to do one on the same lines with youngsters. The result: Kadhalai Thavira Verondrum Illai. The film has all the ingredients to make it a box office hit.
Hero Yuvan: I have done three films — Pasakkara Nanbargal, Saattai and Kirippulla. Director Selvabharathi Kumarasamy who saw my photos at a dubbing theatre contacted my father, actor-director Feroze Khan, and cast me as the hero of this film. My character comes through as a rude person in the first half of the film and the second half explains the behaviour in an interesting way.
Music director Srikanth Deva: When director Selvabharathi came to me with the storyline of this film, I instantly felt it would go down well with the younger audience. The film has also offered me enough scope to showcase my composing skills. I am sure the songs as well as the background score will be appreciated.
