In a recent media interaction, director Pandiraj has said that STR is one of the most talented actors in Tamil cinema but at the same time, he is too lazy. Pandiraj says that Simbu aka STR can perform the desired output in one take but most of the time he would come late to the shoot and sometimes he doesn’t even turn up.
Pandiraj has also said that Idhu Namma Aalu is no Baahubali and if STR cooperated, he would have finished the shoot within five months. “When INA was started, my son born and now he is in kindergarten”, laughs Pandiraj.
During the delay of Simbu film, Pandiraj has shot two films, Pasanga 2 and Kathakali, which were released before Idhu Namma Aalu.
