Annabelle Sethupathi director lauds Thalaivii director Vijay!
Passion Studios Sudhan Sundaram and G. Jayaram's “Annabelle Sethupathi” starring Vijay Sethupathi and Taapsee Pannu is all set for a worldwide premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar, from September 17 onwards. The film’s debut director Deepak Sundarrajan, is none other than the son of reputed filmmaker R Sunderajan. The father-son duo addressed the press and media recently.
Director R Sunderajan got nostalgic as he recounted, “It’s been 40 years I embarked on my directorial journey in the film industry. I am happy to see the film critics, who reviewed movies I made during the early stages of career. I earnestly request the media and press to render the same support for my son Deepak. "
He added, "Till now, I am not aware about what the film or its plot is all about. I have never interfered in his vision and ambitions. I wanted him to be independent and make his own decisions. I was happy to hear the producer call me on phone after watching the final output and mention that the movie has come out well. After watching the songs and trailer here, I am glad and proud that the movie doesn’t look like a one made by a newcomer. I humbly request you all to support my son’s journey in the industry.”
Debut director Deepak Sundarrajan said, " The producer is the sole reason for the grandeur in this movie. I thank Vijay Sethupathi, Taapsee Pannu, Radhika Madam and all the other actors for banking their trust on me and acting in this movie. This is not a horror movie, but a fantasy-comedy, which will be liked by all. "
Speaking about his journey and future plans, he credited Thalaivii director Vijay as he added, "I have learnt a lot of humanity from my father, but inherited the directorial lessons from my mentor AL Vijay sir. I have no intention to just continue to making only comedy movies, but am looking forward to working in different genres as well. I have no desire to appear before the camera and my core concentration is direction.”
