Santhanam who will confront Sivakarthikeyan’s Velaikkaran at the box office on December 22nd with Sakka Podu Podu Raja says he has no intentions to compete with Siva. “It’s not a competition as such. If you think it’s a competition, let it be. What’s wrong with it? As long as the competition is healthy, it’s quite welcome,” said Santhanam.
Santhanam also reiterated that he would not act in any film henceforth as a supporting comedian. “I have enough roles as hero’s friend. Now, I’m focussing on playing the protagonist. I will not go back to playing a sidekick,” he added.
Questioned about the accusations on Simbu by producer Michael Rayappan, Santhanam said, “You all have heard one version of the story. Simbu will present his case and speak out his mind at the audio launch. And then we can take sides.”
The audio of the film, which is certified UA and set to hit screens on December 22nd, will be held today evening in Kalaivanar Arangam. Dhanush has been invited to release the album.
