The filmmaker said that the film’s shoot took place for 125 days and 100 days of shoot were took place in the night. “We shot with Kamal sir for 60 days and with other stars for the rest of the days. Kamal sir gave me full freedom as he didn’t even ask where the shooting is taking place and what actors I’m shooting with in the days that he didn’t involve. He believed me so much that I showed him the film only last week and didn’t ask a single question till that since the shoot’s start” Lokesh said in the interview.

The filmmaker made sure that the film is a “pakka entertainment emotional action film” and no politics involved in it. Unlike “Master”, for which he said that it will be 50-50 film of himself and Vijay, Lokesh said that he owns “Vikram”  100 %. While answering to one of questions of Baradwaj Rangan, Lokesh Kanagaraj revealed that he uttered a bad word out of “excitement” while saying “cut” for his idol Kamal Haasan for the first time.

Baradwaj asked Lokesh whether it was a different experience for him to see Kamal Hasaan through monitor as he grew up watching him in different formats such as TV, Theatre. Replying to that, Lokesh said that it was indeed a different experience for him as he jumped out of excitement and uttered a bad word while saying saying “cut” for Kamal Haasan for the first time.

“My first shot with Kamal sir was at RKFI where we made a scene of himself opening his eye. But as a shoot, my first encounter with Sir was a song. As you said, I have been watching sir in different formats all these days and watching him through monitor for the first time was a different experience” said Lokesh Kanagaraj.

“After saying “Action” for the first time, instead of saying “cut”, I uttered a bad word and was clapping and jumping out of excitement. Someone else needed at that time to say “cut” and Sir (Kamal Haasan) also knows about that” The filmmaker further said.

Lokesh, throughout the interview, shared about many more aspect of the film and looked very much promising to make “Vikram” a huge hit. As far as the speculations between Lokesh’s other films being connected to “Vikram”, Lokesh Kanagaraj, indirectly confirmed that there was few scenes like that by referring to how Thiagaraja Kumararaja connected “Aranya Kandam” and “Oram Po” in which he worked as a writer.
