He elevated the scene to the next level. While writing, I didn’t expect it to be a special scene as it went with the story’s flow. ” said Vignesh.
“We shot those scenes in London. When we were preparing to shoot the scene from 3 O clock, Simbu sir asked me to give him time. He took 30 to 45 minutes to get prepared for the scene’s mood. Then he came and performed the scene in single shot. Without glycerin, looked he was crying while performing. That scene will always be an example to prove how good Simbu as an actor is.” said the filmmaker in the interaction.
