‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaya’ gathered the crowd attention with its rib tickling comedy by Santhanam and Powerstar Srinivasan. The performance by the duo was greatly appreciated by the audience. However, after the controversies revolving around Powerstar, Santhanam has decided to maintenance a little distance from him. Santhanam never visited Powerstar in the jail, which Powerstar had expected.
In a recent interview, Santhanam expressed it was a intentional move to have Powerstar in his movie. Since the movie was produced by Santhanam, he did not want to exaggerate his role and hence he decided to have Powerstar in the movie. He says that they were aware of the fact that Powerstar will be hogging the limelight, however they wanted him to have a career boost.
