It was a great moment for Anjaan team when the teaser of the film crossed 1.2 million views on YouTube. To share this happy moment, Suriya, Lingusamy along with editor Antony, dialogue writer Brinda Sarathy and UTV Motion Pictures chief G Dhananjayan met the media and fans of the star at a star hotel.
Suriya was all smiles and patiently sat through the entire event of sharing few titbits about the film, cutting a cake with Anjaan team, answering all the questions that fans asked him, posed with them for photographs and finally met select media persons with an infectious smile.
He confessed that the reach of social media and internet sites is huge and he intends to join Twitter and Facebook soon. He said: "Expectation about every film of mine is getting bigger and I have to satisfy the classes, masses, families and kids. My kids, wife and parents have to watch and enjoy my films. The business of my films is big and it has a market in Kerala, Andhra, Hindi and overseas. So the content and presentation has to match the sensibilities of all these audiences. So my responsibility is huge"
The reluctant superstar said that "Working with Lingusamy was a pleasure and there was no pressure at all. It was happiness from day-one to last day of shoot and when it was pack-up time, I felt like the last day in college. He knows how to satisfy the audiences and hence I was relaxed".
"Anjaan is just not an action film packaged to satisfy the opening weekend crowd but the breezy romance, sentiments, songs, visuals and over-all packaging is going to be lapped up by all section of audiences", Suriya added.
Lingusamy who is mighty pleased about the film and spoke about Suriya's commitment. "It was not easy to make his character convincing and during the entire shoot; he totally surrendered to Raju Bhai the character that he plays in the film". He further added and asked everyone to come to the theatres with expectation but not have too much of it.
About his singing a song in the film, Suriya said that it was an accident and he is waiting for the response to decide if he will continue to croon in future. Suriya praised Santhosh Sivan and his camerawork. "We all call him the 'magic man' as he brings a magic to all the shots. He never plans and we are clueless about what he has visualised before every shot. I have been shown in a different light and he has exploited me well."
Dhananjayan of UTV was all praise for Suriya, as he readily agreed to come for the promotions at the last minute. The whole programme where select social media fans of Suriya was invited along with the media, turned out to be a new concept and an instant hit. Dhananjayan said: " Had a great interactive meeting with fans & media friends on the tremendous response for #Anjaan teaser."
On his future films, Suriya said that he intends to do only one film a year and his next two films are with Venkat Prabhu and Vikram Kumar (of Manam fame). Due to all these commitments he has put his Bollywood career on ten back-burner but if all goes well, he might do a straight Telugu film in future.
