Speaking about NGK, director Selvaraghavan had recently said, “With Suriya sir, just like I am a fan of Kamal sir and Rajini sir, the little fanboy in me would create moments that his fans would enjoy. This does not mean my style would go but it just meansthat, there would be some space for the fanboy to extract the kind of Suriya that this fanboy likes to see on screen.“
“I am used to making raw and intense films and do not like any sort of compromise. In fact, none of my actors generally have a problem portraying the characters I sketch for them,” he further added.
