We couldn’t understand it at that time due to inexperience. He would demand things with the go and it made suffer at times” said Cheran in the interaction who went to share about the main clash between himself and Kamal Haasan.

“On that day, shooting took place in Mount road. We all made our presence in the spot and the scene is between Kamal Haasan and Poornam Vishwanathan. Suddenly rain started pouring and Sun appeared simultaneously. This naturally created a rainbow in the sky which made Kamal Haasan to think about shooting the scene along with the rainbow.” said Cheran about the incident.

“He urged us to get the camera immediately to shoot the scene but the owner of the camera went to a car located far from the shooting spot to secure the camera from the rain. There were no vehicles to travel to get the camera as we removed all of them to clear the field. When we reached the guy with the camera he refused to take it camera out in rain. However we managed to bring the camera to the spot and unfortunately rain stopped” says Cheran with a wide laugh.

“Kamal sir started thrashing us due to the dejection. After seeing his scolding us we got angry. An associate director, out of frustration, left the spot in anger by throwing the things. Along with him, me and two other assistant directors left the spot immediately. I came to realize my ignorance only after my directorial debut in which I started scolding my assistants” Cheran revealed.
