Sundar C is always known for his comic films which were highly successful. For the first time the director did a offbeat film “Anbe Sivam” but it was a commercial failure. In an recent interview Sundar C said that “I won’t direct a film like Anbe sivam any more because it changed my life and I didn’t got a single chance after its debacle. People lauded me after watching it in DVDs and TV channels but it won’t fetch livelihood for a film maker ”
Sundar C also said that after Anbe Sivam’s failure his bank account was blocked and even he was not paid with a proper salary for Anbe Sivam. Sundar C said “people expecting me to direct commercial comic film and it is my cup of tea”.
