Don’t watch foreign films, prefer MGR-Sivaji

By nature, when a young aspiring wannabe filmmaker asks his mentor for ideas, a moviemaker may refer him to watch the best foreign films so as to get ideas. But here’s something we tend to experience with director SP Jananathan.

The ace director has already won accolades for his stunning directorial with exceptional themes and now he’s all set to make his next film completely brimmed with newcomers in lead roles.

Meanwhile, he has been referring his assistant directors to watch something different. Know what? When his assistants ask from DVDs of World Cinema, he eventually asks them to watch the films of MGR and Sivaji Ganeshan saying that one will get more ideas from such great flicks…

Of course, the director maintains a great record of owning home videos of all MGR and Sivaji films…
