Adhik speaks about AAA, Simbu

June 19, 2017

Adhik Ravichander, who directs Simbu for Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, says, 'It was Simbu who chose me to direct the film. After Trisha Illaina Nayanathara (TIN), many thought I could only do 'bittu' padam.


I wanted to do a commercial entertainer and was itching to go to the next level. A lot of producers wanted to sign me, but the heroes were generally very hesitant. I couldn’t convince the world that I didn’t want to make another ‘bittu padam’.

Simbu had been very encouraging right from the time TIN’s teaser came out, and he was the one who initiated this project. There were lots of negative things written about him. Actually when we got down to work, I was amazed by his dedication.'

Asked what is AAA about, he says, 'It is about me, you and people around us. There is Anbanavan, Adangadadhavan and Asaradhavan in every one of us. Situations bring out everything.

It is a commercial fare. And at the same time, there are elements that one saw in TIN will be in AAA too for I don't want to disappoint young audience who follow me'.
