Producer Karthikeyan Santhanam (Stonebench Films) said...
We are waiting for Diwali 2023 for the release of this movie. Thank you Kathiresan sir for giving me this stage. We wanted to meet you (press and media) exactly a month before the release and share information about 'Jigarthanda Double X'. We have made this film at a huge cost. Thanks to Raghava Lawrence, S J Suryah sir, Director Karthik Subbaraj and all members of the crew. We hope this movie will be a huge hit. Watch this in theaters for Diwali and support us.
'Jigarthanda' won the National Award. We hope that 'Jigarthanda Double X' will also win the National Award. Editing and music will be pillars of this movie. I wouldn't be here without my Stone Bench Films. Thanks to everyone who helped us.
Music composer Santhosh Narayanan said...
Everyone here said the single that was released today is a great song. We have made one such entire album. Do watch this movie in theatres. I get my own space when I do a film with Karthik Subbaraj. Karthik sir is my biggest supporter. I hope I have given good music. This movie has a special place in the list of my favorite films I have worked on. This flick will be different. Both SJ Suryah and Lawrence have acted well. There are huge expectations for this film. This is definitely a connect for you, thank you all.
Actor and director SJ Suryah said...
Hello everyone, We are handing over 'Jigarthanda Double X' to you press and media friends. The fim has content to reach audience across borders. I have seen the amount of anticipation a Karthik Subbaraj film can generate. Santhosh Narayanan, who does not speak much, has spoken a lot on this stage. This film has made him to speak so. Lawrence sir is a noble human being. It was a pleasure to work with him in this film. Karthik Subbaraj sir's work and visuals are always extraordinary. God is sending good projects to me. 'Iraivi' is the biggest reason why I am a good actor here. I thank Karthik Subbaraj sir for that. There is much to talk about. We will definitely talk. This movie has taken shape very well.
Actor Raghava Lawrence said...
Greetings to all the journalists and friends who have come here, thanks to all my fans who love me without any expectations. I was supposed to act in 'Jigarthanda'. Kathiresan and Karthik Subbaraj narrated its story. I was working on a Telugu film so I couldn't do it. I was worried that I had missed it. 'Jigarthanda Double X' is the God-given opportunity to compensate it. I call those who teach me in life as Guru. I had worked in a film with Balachander sir. I call Superstar Rajini sir as Guru. Karthik Subbaraj is also a guru now. This movie is all about what he said. Karthik Subbaraj has made this movie very well. The team has constructed a road for people in the shooting location. This film will be a super hit just because of its team's helping nature.
I am a big fan of Santhosh Narayanan. There is a lot to talk about this movie. It was a pleasure to act with SJ Suryah sir.
Director Karthik Subbaraj said...
Hello everyone, I am very happy to be on this stage. I hope this film will give me a big hit after 'Petta'. I came to Satyam Theatre for the audio launch of 'Pizza'. 'Jigarthanda Double X' gives me that kind of feeling now. Thanks to everyone who worked on this film. I won't talk much about this movie. I hope you will talk about this story. Thanks to Stonbench Films and Kathiresan sir. As Santhosh Narayanan said, this film has come out very well. Thanks to our journalist friends. Please shower your support on us."
