Vidya told us she signed this film be­cause of the script and the di­rec­tor Suresh Triveni. “I must tell you how this film came about. My brother-in-law told me about Suresh. I trust his cre­ative in­stincts very much. For the first time, he told me that this di­rec­tor wants to share some ideas with me. When he nar­rated the script to me, I could see the en­tire film in front of my eyes. It was quite a crazy feel­ing. He brought alive Sulu and all the other char­ac­ters and I could see ev­ery­thing. I felt that if this man is as good a di­rec­tor as the nar­ra­tor he is then I must say yes to the film. That’s how I ended up do­ing the film. Also, af­ter years I shot in Mumbai. Nor­mally, I do not like shoot­ing in Mumbai be­cause I get dis­tracted by so many other things. But I re­ally en­joyed shoot­ing this film. I was ac­tu­ally shoot­ing seven min­utes away from home. Suresh in­vested trust in each in­di­vid­u­als on the sets, hence ev­ery­one wanted to do their job bet­ter and bet­ter in the film. I re­ally en­joyed be­ing Sulu. I haven’t laughed or smiled so much as a char­ac­ter in the twelve years that I have been a film ac­tor. We shot in the Mumbai sum­mer but I didn’t mind it at all.”
