Actor STR has sent a video message on completing Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, recent controversies surrounding him.
“We have completed Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, thanks to Mani sir who believed in me and gave an opportunity to act in his film. I never thought of acting in a Mani Ratnam film in my life. Of course, I still regret for not acting in his Anjali but will make him proud with Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, said STR who thanked his costars Arvind Swamy, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Aishwarya Rajesh and Dayana.
“We don’t know how quickly we completed Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, the shoot happened day and night. You can see that hard work we put in my eyes”, said STR in his speech.
“I can’t be a robot. Yes, I love films but can’t work in a certain time frame but my lifestyle seems to affect others, will change for them. I never intended to be selfish”, added the actor.
“People say there can’t be next Rajini but nothing wrong in dreaming to become like him because Rajini sir wanted to become like MGR and only because of that, he got the superstar title. Similarly, Vijay and Ajith sir wanted to become next Rajini so they got the deserved place in the industry”, said STR who thanked his fans for their unconditional support.
“My parents never gave up on me and my fans have also supported me in tough times. I wanted to be next Rajini but now, understood that the life is all about mukthi and Moksha and not interested in the title anymore. But one thing is for sure, only God has to decide to whom the position must be given. I don’t want to blame anyone. For Mani sir film, I went on time and promising that I will continue this in my future film. Thanks to all my fans and I’m very excited about Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, I’m here only because of you. I’m also in talks for a series of films, will come back to the country and confirm those projects”, signed off the actor.
