In 20 years I might not exist in the cinema or even in life, for that matter. After some time in life, when I think if I had done anything useful in life, I will think, I have done Jana Sir’s movie, it’s a very big success. I don’t think anyone can easily get to work with him. He has certain standards and policies in life. But no one can tease someone like him. We miss him. I am not telling this for the sake of the stage. He truly took care of everyone. I miss him calling by name. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a successful movie or not. This is Jananathan sir’s movie.”
