During a recent interaction with a leading website, Ahik Ravichandran recalled how ‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’ had helped him taste commercial success and added that it was a film that captured the pulse of the audience quite well. Besides this, he stressed that several couples watched the film even though even though he had asked women to refrain from watch TIN as it was a sex-comedy.
“I called up the producer and told him I have a bad story, but it will win commercially. As said, TIN did well commercially, thanks to the youth. However, the film got an ‘A’ certificate and also, before the release I told audiences that this is not for women. I told women not to come to the theatres for it’s content but still lots of couples thronged the theatres. I did not wrongly market TIN and I think it helped. We just made a trendy film which could catch the pulse of the audiences and it worked for us,” he added.
In case you did not know, TIN hit screens in 2015 and featured GV Prakash in the lead. Upon release, it fared well at the box office and helped the director get his career off to a good start. At present, Adhik is gearing up for the release of ‘Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan’. It is an action-comedy and features Simbu in the lead. He will be seen essaying a triple role in this one. Besides STR, it also features Tamannaah and Shriya Saran in the lead. AAA is STR’s first release of the year.
