Speaking to the media, Suryah said, “Even before I ventured into showbiz as an assistant director, I craved for this moment to work with him. Now to see it happening sends gold rush into my veins, but at the same time, I’m nervous to imagine that I am going to share screen space with him.”
He further revealed that Amitabh Bachchan has set aside 35 days from his schedule for the same. Suryah added, “We had requested him for 40 days. He showed me his calendar for next year and I was so inspired that he’s so busy even at this age. He requested us to complete his portion in 35 days.”
