Weighed down by expectations after the mega success of Ghajini, director A.R. Murugadoss’ next venture will be shot simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. “I had a script tailor-made for Suriya and we decided to go ahead. The grandeur will be on a larger scale than Ghajini. Both myself and Suriya are feeling the heat to churn out an entertainer matching audience expectations,” says this unassuming director.
Postponing his next direct movie in Hindi, Murugadoss says wants to ensure that there is a good script to back the artistes. “It is foolhardy to decide on the star cast without a proper script,” says Murugadoss, who is clear in his view that the artistes have to fit in the script and not vice versa.
About his relying only on big banners and famous artistes, Murugadoss said it has to be seen on the commercial angle. “Producers invest only on winning horses,” says this affable director.
