Hansika has commented that she initially hesitated to take up movie ‘Settai’. Hansika spoke: -
‘Director Kannan approached me saying that he is to remake Hindi movie ‘Delhi Belly’ in Tamil as ‘Settai’. I asked him whether he is to make me do such movie and make me dance with plastic cover wrapped upon my face. There was that much hesitation in me to do the movie.’
‘There were criticisms that there are obscene dialogues and scenes in Hindi version of the movie. I was confused as to how Tamil fans would accept such a movie. So, I refused to do the movie.’
‘Then the director explained that the script has been changed to suit Tamil culture. After completion of movie schedules, I have had satisfaction. I was not given scenes which I do not prefer doing.’
‘The movie’s story has been changed such that Tamil fans accept it. With the original movie, there is not much work for my character during movie’s climax. In Tamil, priority has been given to the character. Also, the movie crew cooperated well. There are good artistes in the movie as Arya, Santhanam and Anjali’ said Hansika.
