To his questions, Kamal said that it is just an accident and they three (Kamal, Musician Ilayaraja and Lyricist Vaali) never intended to make people do violence in the name of caste through their song. “For that accident we three have to ask apologize. The song was only made to glorify the protagonist role and we didn’t comprise anything related to caste in that song” Kamal Haasan said. “We have apologized for that many times and if I have to do Devar Magan again, I won’t title it as “Devar Magan” but it was required at that period of time.” he added.
