Excerpts from the press meet are as follows:
Vairamuthu"AR Rahman and Mani Ratnam sat together and wrote the song Mental Manadhil. Many people asked me why I didn't write, that's because I was out of town and amdist the gap these two made it as lyricists. The lesson I learnt was to never leave the city while working in a film". On that note, the whole media burst out of laughter.
About the film he said, ''How will you handle a culture shock? In fifty years, we might even have to face the question; will we still believe the institution of marriage? This film enlightens you about all this and makes you question your belief. How the lead characters go about justifying this culture shock is what this film is about.''
He added, ''Keep appreciating our work in public and if you want to criticise, do it over the phone''
AR RahmanOne can never get tired of ARR's songs. But what drives this man to compose something fresh and new each time? He said, ''Well, people always ask me 'what next as everything so far is going good for you?' I feel that's where the problem is. If I sit down and think everything is going good, I might get stagnated. Complacent attitude will always pull you down. I have the same energy and enthusiasm that I had when I started.''
Dulquer SalmaanThis most sought after actor felt this was a dream-come-true project. He said, ''This entire one year feels like a dream. A dream that I don't want to wake up from. A dream that I want to keep living. This is a dream team; working with people like PC Sreeram, Mani Ratnam and AR Rahman is magical. I am actually sad that the film is going to release as I have to wake up from my dream''.
Mani Ratnam''I want to thank each and everyone who worked for the film. When I approached Leela Samson, I was very skeptical if she would do it or not. But I got such a positive response from her and I can't be happier than this with her performance. Ramya is also a part of our team and it has been a pleasure working with everyone''.
Leela Samson''I was the oldest in the crew but the youngest and newest actor in the team. This is my first attempt in acting and it has been an amazing experience. At this age making me walk a new path with the same freshness is something that I want to give it to Mani Ratnam. He made me do it and the learning was brilliant.''
PC SreeramHis work says it all and we can't expect more from a living legend to articulate the event better. 'Welcome everyone and Thank you for coming''
