“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.
