“After “Naan Pizhai” got released and became a huge hit, Nayanthara requested me to do well with the song of Samantha. When I showed “Dippam Dappam” to Nayanthara, she felt extremely happy and excited and believed that Samantha would definitely love it. She enjoyed that and she also enjoys this” Vignesh Shivan said referring to the reception Samantha’s role is getting.
“No one should blame us tomorrow of reducing the portions of Samantha and for ruining her character in the film. We didn’t want people to tell that the role of Kanmani was good compared to Khatija. We are happy now that Khathija role is being celebrated more than Kanmani” Vignesh Shivan said.
