A few months ago, director Adhik Ravichandran suffered a major setback when his highly ambitious ’Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan’ bombed at the box office while receiving highly negative reviews. In fact, the response was so poor that the makers were forced to drop the planned sequel. Now, Adhik has broken his silence on the matter. During a chat with a leading daily, he said that he knew that AAA would not work at the box office even before it hit screens as he was not really satisfied with the final product.
“Even I didn’t feel the contentment of having shot a satisfying film. You could say I knew on some level that the film wouldn’t be a hit even before its release,” he added.
He also revealed that he was absolutely heartbroken by the film’s debacle and refused to answer any calls.
“I didn’t respond to messages or phone calls. I just wanted to be left alone. My life changed overnight with that film. I didn’t respond to messages or phone calls. I just wanted to be left alone. I tried my best, but I totally understand why people didn’t like it. Now, I’m glad that I have already tasted failure. I have learned a lot more from it than I did with success,” added Adhik.
Interestingly, it was reported that the Simbu was one of the main reasons for its debacle. Talking about such reports, he said that he did not want to play a blame game. He added that he was more than ready to work with STR again.
“There are risks when you do a film with a star. But it’s all right. Criticism and negativity is a part of this job too,” Adhik said.
Well, we wish the director good luck for the future and hope that he bounces back ASAP.
