Vijay is a very jovial person, but I think it is the nature of Vijay not to talk with anyone in the shooting. He will not talk to anyone, unless the person is either his director or some one connected with the film shooting. When he enters the sets he would say ‘hello’ to everyone. Similar treatment was meted out by me. It took some days for him to move with me freely. The shooting of the film took more than four months and in that meantime we became good friends. In my opinion he is a gentle man of the era in the film world.
It doesn’t feel like a comeback at all. People have given me a warm welcome and I feel like I’ve always been in the industry, like I didn’t even take a break. This is the happiest phase in my career because I’m doing films that I really want to do. The scripts of all the films that I’ve taken up have impressed me. I’m not looking at the screen space when I’m signing films now; but fortunately, I’ve got meaty roles.
