Every actor had completed shooting for this movie amidst so many challenges, but offered their complete dedication towards this project. Both music director and lyricist started journeying with me right from the beginning of this movie. It was a tough task to shoot the movie with the real piglets. We had to use lots of techniques to get the scenes shot. I take this opportunity to thank the villagers around Usilampatti for their support during the film’s shooting.
