Two-time National Award-winning actor Dhanush's Naane Varuvean directed by ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan and featuring music by chart-buster composer Yuvan Shankar Raja is gearing up for a massive theatrical release on September 29 and blockbuster producer Kalaipuli S. Thanu's V Creations banner is hitting the top gear with the promotions once again. In that light, the hit producer sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta and opened up on several questions related to Naane Varuvean, while also sharing his thoughts about why there was no audio launch for the film or why the lead trio didn't give any interviews in comparison to the Ponniyin Selvan team that has been touring the entire country for the promotions.
Addressing the query, Kalaipuli S. Thanu said, "Here's my question - will you be able to ask this question to Ajith or Vijay? Today, if he (Dhanush) wants to come, he is free to do so. But, this need not be made a question. The fact is that we can come even without all this. Now, I've put up posters for the film across Tamil Nadu. You can't ask me if they (Ponniyin Selvan team) have put up posters and I haven't. Our product is a good one. We are supposed to promote the film. And, we are doing the publicity. Posters are being put up. Promos are being released on television. I was asked why I haven't done any promotions for television. The law is such today that the teaser and trailer can be telecast only after it has been viewed by the censor board. In order for that to happen, I have to finish the film first. This is because a single editor had to work on the entire film and is the reason for the delay. There's no other particular reason. But, when the film comes out, you just watch its speed then."
When asked about whether he is worried about not promoting Naane Varuvean in a grand manner as he usually does and is usually known for, Kalaipuli S. Thanu said, "I have felt it within myself because I had not received the trailer yet. I was standing unarmed without a weapon. You will see our game after we have been handed our weapons. The editor had to cut the trailer for 10 seconds and he gave it to me yesterday. I immediately went and passed it onto the censor board. Nowadays, what's happening is we have to send the trailer footage to the censor board in Mumbai, and only after the chairman has given his approval can it be shown for public viewing. I'm planning now to make arrangements in the future for the censor process to happen here itself."
