At the success meet of Kanaa, veteran actor Sathyaraj showered praise on Sivakarthikeyan for producing a meaningful film to the society. 

“Being a top hero, Sivakarthikeyan could have easily acted in more films and earn money but he produced Kanaa because of the content and also the happiness he attains through helping his friends”, said Sathyaraj.

“The victory of Kanaa belongs to the society. If not for Sivakarthikeyan’s presence, Kanaa wouldn’t have got this much attention. Sivakarthikeyan to Kanaa is what Aamir Khan to Tare Zameen Par”, added the Baahubali actor.

Sathyaraj also said that the success of films like Kanaa will inspire filmmakers to make more heroine-centric films. “Balachander used to make such films but later those audiences preferred watching TV serials where the protagonists are heroines. Now, the success of films like Kanaa will bring back the trend”, said Sathyaraj.

Sathyaraj also jovially said that these days YouTube and TV channels are trying to capture the emotional moments of actors to earn more views. “Actually, I have an eye irritation issue due to age factor and occasionally water comes out of my right eye. When Aishwarya said that she considers me as her own dad at the audio launch, I didn't cry. But these YouTube channel captioned it saying I felt very emotional during the audio launch. However, when I really felt emotional for comedy actor Sathyan who is my relative at the Nanban success meet, I was disturbed with multiple cameras zooming and trying to capture my personal moment”, said Sathyaraj.
