His Maatran is fast nearing completion and director K. V. Anand says he hopes to wrap up the remaining portion, including a song, by April end, after which post-production work will commence. Meanwhile, there was a lot of speculation that Anand had been approached to direct superstar Rajnikanth. Says Anand: “As a cinematographer, I have filmed him in Shivaji and admire him for his talent and experience. Before any such project is agreed upon, I will have to do a lot of self-assessment to see if I am worthy enough to direct him. At the same time, when I am approached by any producer or actor to direct a film, I must have a foolproof script ready; I don't want to look like an idiot with a half-baked story when I meet them. Right now, I can think of nothing beyond Maatran; I will move on to my next project only after its release,” says Anand.
