Director Bala and the Naan Kadavul unit are absolutely convinced that this film will sweep several National Awards. That is the reason they have worked on everything so carefully, not allowing anything to stand between them and their prospective National Awards.
Bala made sure Pooja dubbed for herself in Naan Kadavul, for the National Award committee does not consider actors for an award if they do not dub in their own voices.
Also, realizing that films made in digital format cannot compete for the Best Film of the nation, Bala gave up the idea of converting Naan Kadavul into digital format.
The entire unit is very confident about Bala and Arya walking away with Best Director and Best Actor awards, respectively at the 56th National Film Awards.
