A R Murugadoss is very popular in Bollywood. Many Bollywood stars are waiting for his call sheet. When asked him that why he is not using this opportunity, he said, “I will do what I like. I cannot keep on directing Hindi films like you say.
Only Tamil films gave me the identity. I will not lose this. I was very shy during the Hindi Ghajini time. Many asked that whether I was the director. After seeing this film, many asked that whether I was the one who directed this film.
If it was like that at that stage how would I have been during Dheena days? Ghajini is a story which will be suitable for all languages. If I get a story like that I will be there. I cannot write stories and force it because they are waiting for my call sheet.
Thuppakki is a film about a Tamilian living in Mumbai. It will be good if that film is made in Tamil. The film is also being made in Hindi with some changes. Akshay Kumar told me to approach him any time and he will be ready with his call sheet. No one will get this kind of opportunity. Only the story has to decide that where I should direct films.”
