At the Balloon press meet, director Sinish said that he didn’t speak anything Atlee and actor Vijay. The director posted a clarification message to Thalapathy fans, which is as follows…
“#Balloon PressMeet…okk! High tym I clarify 🙂 First of all I am just a normal Cinema Fan who got an oppurtunity to work in the industry after my fair share of struggles! All what i spoke in the press meet was just out of love for cinemas! Oru padatha paathu Inspire aagi hit kuduka nijama talent venum.. Aana inspire aana vishayatha othukanum, appdi illena social media la kalaichiduvanga nu edaarthamaana vishayatha dhan nan sonnen!
My main idea was to convey that Nainspire aagi dhan padam eduthen! Maximum of the films inspire aagi dhan directors edukraanga! Only thing which matters is to give credit to whatever has acted as the inspiration! Idha dhan na oru normal audience ah solla try pannen! Sathyama oru director ah scene poda lam pesala!
I have so far never said anywhere that my movie will be a hit coz I kno that it is something which audience have to decide after the movie release!! Soo na getha pesren nu nenachu ellam pesala! Edhuva irundhalum manasu lendhu pesiduven! Whoever knows me and have been following me will know this am sure! The reason why I am explaining all dis now is that I don wanna hurt anyone personally!
I have real high regards for Thalapathy and his fans so only i kept his ref in teaser.if u can watch the full press meet video u can c i hav never said anything about thalapathy or his movies And indha status na bayandhu dhan podren nu yaarachum yosicha, amReally sorry for them! Peace Bro!”.
For people who don’t know, Sinish said that the story of Balloon is inspired from various Hollywood films and he is not like some directors (Atlee) who inspired by Mounaragam and make a film (Raja Rani) but say they never watched the old film.
