At the audio launch of Sakka Podu Podu Raja, Dhanush said “Though STR is acting from his childhood, he and I debuted as a hero in 2002. In fifteen years, we share our failures and success. Anyone can come to this industry and they can also taste success but staying on the top is difficult, STR is here for fifteen years”.
“Simbu, you should listen to this (pointing out the thunderous applause from fans), do at least two films a year for them, it’s your duty. Just like me, they also don’t really expect anything from you, their love is unconditional.”, said Dhanush.
“Once Ashok Rajan master showed me a dance video of STR and asked me to follow him. I can never ever dance like STR. I’m an accidental actor but STR is a born star. At the age of 21, he directed a film”, praised Dhanush with great magnanimity.
