“It is a blessing to work with someone like Jayaram sir. Ravi and I would tell this to each other often. ‘Only he (Jayaram) is an actor and we are just at the ‘a’ of acting.’ Such a talent!”
“I won’t disclose the secrets but here is an interesting fact. The character Jayaram sir plays on screen — Nambi — is five-and-a-half feet in height. But Jayaram sir is six-and-a-half feet. To bring down his height to five-and-a-half feet, he has done something unimaginable in this film.”
