As the interviewer asked if he are doing a film with the actor, the director said: “yes, discussions are going on”.
As Baradwaj Rangan went on to question if you are doing a film with Sivakarthikeyan, would you make a story for the hero or choose hero for the story? A.R. Murugadoss replied “Normally there will be two to three outlines. If you think about It, I did not do Thuppakki for Vijay sir. It was out and out new for him and it was the reason. I did it for a hero before, it got developed, then I narrated the story to Akshay Kumar and got approval and blocked his dates. But as it got delayed, I got permission and did the movie here." “You are talking about Holiday movie” said the host “Yes. I do not consider the hero image while doing the story sometimes it’s like that. But, sometimes, When you think we can do the film in this combination I would have done a story outline before that for Shah Rukh Khan and body language of some heroes will suit others too. So, we will make that story. But, sometime I would do a story just for the hero." This confirms that A.R. Murugadoss’s next with Sivakarthikeyan will be announced soon. Watch full interview here:
