You excelled in village-based themes like Paruthiveeran and Komban. Kadaikutty Singam promises a lot. How do you pull it off being an urban brought up?

Though I grew in city, I spent all my vacation time in my hometown, which thrives on agriculture. So, I managed a connect when I worked in those films. And I trust filmmakers like Pandiraj who ensure the nativity of villages are not lost in their movies. They moulded me well on screen.

This is a family entertainer based on real-life experiences. The heroines including Sayeesha Sehgal and Priya Bhavani Sankar play the role of hero's cousins. They have a part to play in the script.

You play a farmer in this movie. How was the experience?

I visited my hometown often where cotton is cultivated in large scale. I have not seen paddy cultivation there. When Pandiraj sir asked me to step on to a paddy field and work, it was totally new experience for me. But, I loved it. I started to love farming. My be in future, I want to take up agriculture.

On sharing the screen with Sathyaraj.

We call him 'mama' all these years. This was a first time, I called him 'appa'. It was a pleasant experience for me to share the screen with Sathyaraj. The shooting went well and the end product has come good. I learnt a lot working with him.
