Babu Shivan who is currently directing Vijay starrer Vettaikaaran said,” 80% of the shooting of Vettaikaaran is over. Now we are happy that the picture has come out well. I should speak about our mass hero. In Ghilli I was an assistant to Dharani sir.
Dharani elevated me as a dialogue writer for the film Kuruvi. I decided at that time itself that Vijay would be my hero. I prepared a script keeping him in my mind. I told him the story at the time of Kuruvi’s shooting. I got his approval silently. The hero is big and the production banner AVM is also big. I think this is God blessing.”
