Director Atlee spoke with great confidence as usual at the Bigil audio launch. He also responded to his online trolls who tease him based on his skin color with a befitting reply.
“I have a lucky shirt which I wear when I narrate my stories. It happened for Raja Rani and Theri. For Mersal, it didn’t fit me and I went with another shirt. It was only then I realized that my lucky charm isn’t the shirt, it’s Thalapathy Vijay. Again and again, whatever I write, I have only Thalapathy Vijay in mind. I’m working with India’s best dancer and such a big star, I don’t feel like going away from him, even though I got a lot of big offers after Mersal,” said Atlee.
“We are nothing without women. They are more powerful than what you think of. I can write the importance, but I need Thalapathy Vijay to take the message to the masses. With Bigil, it happened in the right way. Bigil will be my BEST FILM in terms of writing. I myself have seen these trolls. Just like how Hindi and English are just languages, black is just a color. Haters are nobody but guys who love us so much. I’ve received comments about black and white, avan copy adikaraan and so much more. Winning them over is a part of my job and I continue to do that. Thanks to my family for my support,” he added.
Bigil is all set for release for Diwali festival next month.
