Being Aishwarya's directorial debut, the father-in-law did have his doubts about her filmmaking ability, he confessed. "I was initially reluctant to say 'OK' to this project though Aishwarya showed me a video she had made. But I couldn't say 'No' after Dhanush showed me the script because it was so good. It's amazing that she took only 50 days to complete the movie," said Kastoori Raja, a filmmaker himself.
