ARMURUGADOSS ABOUT KATHTHI

June 26, 2014

AR Murugadoss" interview to Ananda Vikatan magazine where he spoke about Kaththi"s story,Vijay"s character and much more.

On the controversy surrounding LycaProductions: Not even a penny from our hardwork will go to anyone who is against Tamils.I and Vijay sir will never join hands withsomeone who is against us. If someone is afoe to crores of Tamils and our tradition,they are our enemies too. We havecollaborated with Ayngaran Internationalonly in the beginning. Then, they tied up withLyca. When rumors surfaced, we thoroughlyinquired and got to know that they are SriLankan Tamils

Reason for the title – Kaththi: We did notname the film as Kaththi just because itwould sound like a good follow-up toThuppakki. There is an intimate connectionbetween the film"s title and its story. Infact, some people still believe Kaththi is thefirst instrument humans ever invented. Wehave justified that point in the film

Vijay"s Dual Role: Vijay plays twocharacters in the film namely, Kathiresanand Jeevanantham. But they don"t appear asfather – son pair. The film is not a gangstersaga as people would assume. The story startsfrom Chennai and ends in Chennai itself

Story Discussion: After finishing Thuppakki,I told Vijay sir that I"ll narrate the storysoon before we commit for our next. Vijay sirtold, “Theva illa ippave commit panikuvom.”Then I narrated the story to him and cameout. I received a message from him within ablink of an eye, “Super na.” Not even forThuppakki, he said something like this. It"s because Kaththi is Vijay"s never-before-done and a different attempt

On Samantha: I can never work with actorswho doesn"t know the language I"m makingmy film in. That"s a difficult task for me.So, I expect our heroines to talk andunderstand Tamil. But, Samantha hasexceeded my expectations for the role"Ankita". She always carries a smiling faceand bring a lot of energy on the sets. She has added more flavor to every scene .

On Anirudh: Four days after signing him up,he came up with the theme track for thefilm. I asked him, “Saaar, innum kadhaiyesollala athukulla theme music epdi?”. Hegiggled and replied, “Epdium padathulaherokunu oru theme irukumla sir.”
