Suriya has done conjoined twins in MaatRaan, Priyamani has done conjoined twins in Charulatha. It was reported that both movies would compete with each other. The movie ‘Charulatha’ overtook MaatRaan with regard to release of the movie.
Priyamani has requested not to compare her movie ‘Charulatha’ with MaatRaan’.
Regarding this Priya Maani gave an interview, highlights from which are as follows:-
‘Charulatha has received credit that it is the first Indian movie about conjoined twins. I am happy to have done the movie. Editing for the movie is excellent. I conceded doing the movie as I liked the movie and the character in it.’
‘I very much like the characters Charu and Latha. Please do not compare the movie with MaatRaan. MaatRaan is made with investment of huge budget. MaatRaan would be totally different from Charulatha.’
After movie ‘Ratttha Charitthiram’ I received chances to do variety of characters. I was not satisfied with those. The movie Charulatha has compensated for that shortcoming. The movie turns out an important one in my cine career’ said Priyamani.
