When asked director K V Anand that whether he has narrated a story to Rajnikanth, he said, ” There are rumours that I have narrated a story to Rajnikanth. I have not narrated any story to him. If I get an opportunity I will definitely direct him.
As of now I have no stories in my hands. I am simply idling in my house. I will very soon start writing script for my next film. There are mixed criticisms about Maatran. Some have given bouquets while others have given brickbats.
As far as this film is concerned we have taken pragmatic matters that will suit the story. It was possible because Surya had acted in it. Many are saying that the script of this film is like criticizing Russia. The place mentioned is imaginary. No problems occurred in the Censor Board because of this. I have trimmed 10 minutes of this film since it should not lose its gravity.”
