Speaking at the press meet of Kanaa, veteran actor Sathyaraj who plays Aishwarya Rajesh’s dad in the film said: “Kanaa has the potential to become a blockbuster like Dangal. I’m sure the audience will applaud and shed tears during the climax of the film. I must appreciate director Arunraja Kamaraj for showcasing my leader Periyar’s photo in the background.”
Addressing the media, actress Aishwarya Rajesh who plays an aspiring cricketer in the film said: “I lost my father at the age of 10. I imagined Sathyaraj sir as my father while shooting for Kanaa. It was a memorable experience.” The makers have also screened a glimpse from the film showcasing the father-daughter bond between Sathyaraj and Aishwarya Rajesh which impressed everyone in the media.
The film’s producer Sivakarthikeyan who also essays an important role in the film missed attending the press meet as he was busy shooting for a duet number with Nayanthara for his untitled comedy entertainer with director Rajesh.
Kanaa is all set to release on December 21.
