The entire event looked like a family affair with warmth and good wishes for Suriya & Karthi. While Lingusamy launched the website, Gautham Menon launched the trailer, in the presence of chief guest Suriya. The heroine of the film, Tamannaah, was present in a resplendent sari.
The trailer and two songs were screened for the audience. While one song had Karthi in nine looks with Santhanam, the other was a love melody shot in Phuket between the lead pair. The music director Vidyasagar revealed how choosy director S Siva was about the music while Suriya said, "I am waiting to work in a film with Vidyasagar but Karthi has reached there before me. Even now when I run on the treadmill I hear only his music for that extra energy to run."
Tamannah's speech in Tamil was praised by Suriya who lauded her hard work to reach the top. He added, "We normally keep photos of gods or family members on our mobile phones but Karthi kept Ravi Teja's pic on his phone for one year, just to get the nuance of his cop role right from the Telugu original of this film. He does comedy effortlessly and this is a big plus in the film. I am sure Siruthai will be ten times greater than Singam."
Jeyam Raja praised the Suriya- Karthi team while producer Ravindran described the film as a feast for the public, exhibitors and distributors this Pongal. Director Rajesh said, "This is like a double promotion for Karthi who is doing a dual role." Karthi added, "This is a dream film for me. While playing the cop however, I tried hard not to look like Suriya in Singam. Director Siva has worked on the script for more than a year to get it right and Vidyasagar's music will be a hit. I am grateful to the entire team for putting this film together."
Producer Gnanavel Raja came in for much praise from one and all for delivering quality films. The event was attended by Parthiban, Shanmugam, S P Muthuraman, A Jagannathan, Prabu Solomon, Subhash C Bose, Anbu Chezhiyan, Vijay, Rajeevan and cameraman of the film, Velraj, among others.
