Two decades ago, Bollywood star Kajol made her debut in Tamil cinema with Minsara Kanavu and even though the film earned multiple National Awards and was a hit with the masses, the actor chose not to do any other film in the language. The reason was a sense of inadequacy regarding Tamil. So, when Dhanush and Soundarya approached her, they had their strategy in place. “Dhanush and Soundarya came over and they lied to their teeth, saying, ‘You should do the film because you won’t have to speak Tamil at all.’ But they proved me wrong on the first day when I got a long script with two scenes and huge dialogues. I didn’t know what to do with it. They said, ‘At least try’,” Kajol told reporters at the film’s trailer launch.
