The films hero Ashok Selvan said that the first thing director Gnanavel insisted was to change his look and appearance for the film. While we were shooting the film at a college, the security couldnt identify and refused me to allow inside. Also, my dad didnt recognize me in the first look poster of the film, which I consider as the first recognition for my work in the film.
