"I should also thank Sathyaraj sir for accepting the film. Only because of Sathyaraj sir's presence, the film got a majestic feel. As Aishwarya Rajesh said, she did not know how to play cricket but later trained hard because the climax portion deals with international cricket. Kanaa is world's first women cricket based film", added Sivakarthikeyan.
Sivakarthikeyan said that Kanaa is not a small budget film. "Just because all friends came together for a film, it doesn't mean Kanaa is a small project. We have invested huge money and if the film is accepted and makes profit, then I am game to produce another quality film featuring newcomers".
The films director Arun Raja said that he prefers to see Kanaa turning into a hit rather than just thanking Sivakarthikeyan. Sathyaraj who plays Aishwarya's dad said: "It needs big heart for an actor to produce a film for others. Kamal sir magnanimously produced Kadamai Kanniyam Kattupadu featuring me in the lead". He also said that Aishwarya is the 'Lady Dhanush' due to her acting capabilities.
Aishwarya Rajesh who plays the female protagonist said: "I should thank Sivakarthikeyan for producing a heroine centric film. Only two heroines have the market for female centric films so producer should walk the extra mile to bankroll such projects".
Dhibu Ninan Thomas has composed music for the film and at the event, the makers screened one video song, a making video and teaser. In the teaser, Sivakarthikeyan's special cameo comes as a total surprise.
Sivakarthikeyan also announced that his next production venture will be directed by popular YouTube team 'Blacksheep' and Rio of Saravanan Meenatchi fame will play the lead role.
