I am very cheerful to act in his film. There will be no better start for me than this. It was a great experience to work with Anurag Kashyap who is an actor and director. R D Rajasekaran’s camera is excellent. I am very happy to work with lots of South Indian technicians. I can go on speaking about this film.”
