“Our first meeting was all three of us (Katrina, Vijay, and Sriram) together in a room and I had recently seen a picture of Vijay sir and he had full white hair and a white beard. So when I entered into the office, I didn’t know what to expect and when I saw him like this, I said, ‘Oh wow, that’s a really different look,'” Katrina said at the press conference.
“I was extremely excited to be working with Sriram sir and Vijay sir, and as soon as we came together in a room, I think everyone came just as themselves and we instantly were able to connect. The minute Vijay sir started speaking about the scene, it was fascinating. I just thought that this is the person who uses things in such a unique way and Sriram sir has a very unique take on everything he does.”

Katrina earlier said that working with Sriram Raghavan was a dream come true for her. “I feel incredibly fortunate to have had that opportunity. He’s a phenomenal director with an incredible mind, and being on his set is like entering a whole different world,” she said.
“He’s an amazing collaborator, both as a filmmaker and as a person. It was a very intense experience, especially doing the film in two languages. All of us have been very passionate about making this film from day 1 and are very excited for the release,” she added.
