STR has finally opened up about the failure of Anabanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan and the allegations of its producer Michael Rayappan.This confession happened at the audio launch of Sakka Podu Podu Raja for which STR is composing music .

“If everyone is saying something bad about us, then there should be a mistake from our side. Yes, there are shortcomings on my end and I apologize to the producer. The only thing that bothers me is that he could’ve told me during the shoot or after the release but making it a big issue after six months hurts me. I’m not a good man, If I’ve done anything wrong, forgive me. We thought AAA would be a fun film for fans but due to budget issues thought of making it as a two-part movie but the film didn’t do well at the box office”, said STR.

“The problem with me is if everyone approaches their life following ‘Matha -Pitha- Guru-Deivam’, my order is ‘Deivam-Guru-Pitha-Matha’”, STR turned philosophical.

STR mentioned Dhanush as his enemy on the stage and thanked him for gracing the event. “If I’m dear to many, Dhanush is a humble person, If not Dhanush, anyone would’ve shown an attitude after achieving great heights”.

“If I say this, people would call me arrogant but it’s okay”, said STR and added “When I saw Thulluvatho Ilamai, told Yuvan that the main lead (Dhanush) doesn’t look like a hero. But the film became a hit. Later, I watched Kadhal Kondein and called up Dhanush to say ‘Dhanush, one day, you and I will become big heroes in the industry. In fact, I’m the only one to clap for the duster scene in the film at Albert theater”.

“God has given me an equal position on par with a hard-working actor like Dhanush. I can’t leave that. You can ban me from acting but not from my fans. I’m not going to leave them, forgive me for all my mistakes. People say red card will be issued to me, let them do but don’t know why Mani sir loves me so much, he is going to start the shoot of his next with me from January. I've to reduce my weight, this thoppai (belly fat) is the only issue but I will be fit soon”, signed off the actor.
