    Interview With Susi Ganesan

    Saturday, June 12, 2004
    I learnt a lot from director Manirathnam: Susi Ganesan Susi Ganesan, who won rave reviews for his directorial work in his first two movies, Five Star produced by Manirathnam and Virumbugiren starring Prashanth, is all set to take a leap with his new project Karuppan which will have Madhavan in the lead role. He says, 'the movie would be a different viewing experience for the film buff and especially for Madhavan's fans, who would love to see their star on a different platform altogether'.

    'm happy that people have received both my earlier films well', he says. Thanking director Manirathnam for offering him a chance to direct a movie for Madras Talkies and reposing great faith in him even before his debut venture Virumbugiren saw the light of day, Susi says, 'I learnt a lot from Manirathnam on how to be a good producer as well as a good director while wielding the megaphone for Five Star'.

    What is Karuppan all about?

    The entire script and the story have come out very good. Every individual who watches Karuppan would be envious of what could be achieved on the screen. The shooting would begin in a couple of months and is expected for release on Pongal day.

    Why Madhavan in the lead?

    Madhavan is a director's actor. He would certainly fit in any role. When I narrated the story to him, he was greatly impressed and he readily agreed to do the lead role.

    Why such a long gap after Virumbugiren?

    I don't do movies in a rush. Both my earlier movies, (Five Star and Virumbugiren) brought me name and fame. I want to maintain it and at the same time, work well and come out with a good script that would be liked by the masses. I will begin all my shootings only when I complete my paper work. I took time to complete Karuppan's script in the last few months.

    Experience working for Manirathnam's home production?

    It was a delight to work with Madras Talkies. I learnt how to be a good producer while working for Five Star watching Manirathnam. Now I am confident enough to produce movies in future.
