How was the experience shooting for the film?
It was a fun process. It was new since in my first film I played a school boy from a slum. Here I got to be very stylish. In this film I got to travel to the US and also had special training for the action sequences. We had a great time shooting in the Grand Canyon as well.
Tell us about the special stunts in the film. How did you prepare?
I had trainers from the US and also from Mumbai for the parkour stunts. I learnt hand stands and head stands and acrobatics.
Which is your favourite song?
Its Oru Murai.. which we shot in Las Vegas.
How was it working with Amala and Santhanam?
Amala is really nice and I never felt uncomfortable working with her. With a script like this that’s very important. Santhanam is always spreading positive vibes whenever he is on the sets. So it was fun.
