His views about his Stars  Surya :
“Surya has been more of friend and we had a lot of discussions and many brain storming sessions. Once the actor got caught in a traffic jam and he wanted to be on time to the studio. He was two km away from us. When I got to know I asked if I could send a bike, he said no. Surya just alighted and ran non stop and reached the studio in just fifteen minutes. Surya showed he was very disciplined and was particular of reaching work on time."

Chiranjeevi :
“Chiranjeevi is an icon. I was nervous but he made things comfortable for me. He's amazing, the change of expressions, his terrific timing in comedy and actually he gives you more than what you expect. He's a director's delight.”

Amir Khan :
“I am truly amazed at Aamir Khan’s dedication. His passion comes across evidently. You know he’s thoroughly enjoying himself while at work. It’s a once in a lifetime experience working with him. Not only an actor, he is an excellent director too for I have learned many things from him. Apart from these special qualities, he is a person to be respected for his kind-heart…”

A.R.Rahman :
“A.R.Rahman is work himself. He does nothing but music. He lives, breathes, and talks music. But both these people are very socially aware and have a strong opinion on everything happening around them. It’s been fabulous doing music with A.R.Rahman".

Asin :
"Asin is very talented and sincere. I just have a word for her, she is brilliant."
