Leading Tamil director Karthik Subbaraj is on cloud nine these days after the stupendous response to his latest film, Jigarthanda DoubleX, starring Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah in the lead roles. The period action drama also starring Malayalam actress Nimisha Sajayan as the female lead and featuring music by Santhosh Narayanan has witnessed an increase in the screen count across Tamil Nadu in its second week, with the film being declared a blockbuster. With Jigarthanda DoubleX continuing to be the talk of the town, the team on Friday evening, November 17, addressed the media during a success meet event held in Chennai, which also saw director Karthik Subbaraj call out a reporter for his wrong comment on Nimisha Sajayan's looks. 

During the Jigarthanda DoubleX success meet, Karthik Subbaraj was posed with a question about what made him decide to cast Nimisha Sajayan in the film after her performance in the Siddharth-starrer Chithha despite "not being beautiful". Responding to the query, the acclaimed filmmaker said, "How can you say that she's not beautiful? Perhaps it's your mindset because you can't tell anyone that they're not beautiful. She's a great performer and we have shown that in this film. Her role is that of a tribal girl, who gets married and comes to Madurai city and is shown pregnant throughout the film while going through emotions like anger and love at her husband, and we needed a great performer like her to portray the character."

Karthik Subbaraj further stated, "When I watched The Great Indian Kitchen, I felt she'd be perfect. And, when I narrated the story to her, she played her role effortlessly. We didn't have to do any audition either as I was very confident that she would do it, and as expected she gave an exceptional performance during the shooting. When we once put up a close-up frame for her, both Raghava Lawrence sir and SJ Suryah sir told me that she was performing extraordinarily. She's a great performer."
