Since it's his debut, asked how difficult was it to detach himself as a director and get into a character, Selva replies, "it was difficult in the beginning but I kept reminding myself, 'shut up you are not a filmmaker right now. "It is altogether a different kind of journey. Important is, you do not have to think about filmmaking but switching on yourself as an actor is better,"

Sharing his experience of prepping up and enjoying the character of Sangaiah, Selvaraghavan said, "I wanted to be a clean slate, no preparations and it is difficult being a method actor, prepare for the role and then I thought to better follow him and do the job correctly. Let him decide than I do. I used to look at everything through his eyes, in terms of takes, scenes and watching the monitor. It is thrilling."

The film is skipping theatrical release and will premier directly on the OTT platform from 6 May this year. Billed as a crime thriller, Saani Kaayidham is inspired by a real-life incident from the 1980s. The also stars Lizzie Antony in a key role.
