While talking about Adithi’s interest in acting, Muthaiah said “Shankar sir is India’s one of the best directors. His daughter is like my own daughter. I won’t let my daughter to take a picture of herself in public places. I can click her pictures or she can take picture with my family but I won’t let her take a picture of herself in forum mall”

When the anchor questioned why he wouldn’t let, Muthaiha said “Yes I am a conservative person. When she is clicking her picture, others might click her pictures too. I just don’t want to give room for miscreants. I don’t care about what society thinks of me. I wish to raise my daughter as a woman” the filmmaker said.


“Shankar sir’s daughter is like my daughter and I have all the responsibilities of him. I must see her as my daughter as she is a daughter of my super senior director. When I asked how sir accepted her to become a heroine, she said that it took a long time for her to convince him. I think it is because of the compound of Suriya and Karthi” he added.
