‘I have not achieved anything big in cinemas. If anybody feels I have really accomplished, the credit goes to SA Chandrasekaran. Before joining as assistant for SA Chandrasekaran, I was a drama artiste. I was doing some stage performances. Then, I was a lazy person.’
‘I went to SA Chandrasekaran requesting movie chance. But instead, I joined as his assistant director. I learnt being brisk, learned discipline, and punctuality only from SA Chandrasekaran. SA Chandrasekaran has helped many other directors in their cine career.’
