Blockbuster Tamil filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj is returning to theatres after more than four years with his latest film, Jigarthanda DoubleX, starring Raghava Lawrence and S J Suryah, after the box-office money-spinner Petta (2019) with 'Superstar' Rajinikanth. With the upcoming period action comedy film set for a grand Diwali release on November 10, the hit director sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta to talk about his films that were released on streaming platforms, while also explaining the working process and his experiences with Raghava Lawrence and S J Suryah. 

Karthik Subbaraj, whose Jagame Thandhiram (2021) and Mahaan (2022) were released on OTT, explained his feelings about Jigarthanda DoubleX coming out in cinemas saying, "Petta was the last film of mine in theatres. The experience of Petta and the celebrations after its release were superb. I got to watch the film with the audience and 'Thalaivar' fans. I didn't think during those moments that the films I was doing next would be a theatrical release or not, but the situations were as such. I too feel this is a long gap and I'm very excited and keen to watch my film in the theatre." 

Upon being queried about collaborating with Raghava Lawrence and S J Suryah in Jigarthanda DoubleX, who themselves are established filmmakers, and whether he had to compromise on any occasion, Karthik Subbaraj said, "They will accept. There will be occasions when they will accept immediately and other instances when they will discuss again and again. I too will explain what my requirements are and try to convince them. It's not like this happens on a daily basis, but there have been a few occasions when such discussions have taken place. And, I believe that's a good thing because when we are discussing an important scene or a shot, the focus is on how they will perform and how the output will turn out. During such a scenario, they will have a perspective. At one point, they will be easily convinced and when they aren't, I'll begin to feel tired. And, at that point, I'll tell them that the discussion is enough and that this is how we're going to do it. They never took it in the wrong way and nothing wrong happened either. It was a jolly [experience]."
