Vishal and Samantha Akkineni starrer Irumbu Thirai has been doing great at the box office and the film is being praised for its focus on the digital crime existent these days. Directed by PS Mithran, Irumbu Thirai also stars Arjun Sarja and is seen playing the baddie in it. The makers of the film including the lead actor Vishal celebrated the success of Irumbu Thirai and held a press meet as well. Speaking at the meet, Vishal said that he faced numerous challenges in releasing the film even in the last minute. “Few people in the industry had a thought that Irumbu Thirai release should be stalled at least for a day so that others could say, ‘When a film from TFPC president himself is not releasing, how will he take care of other producers?’. The whole night till next day morning was a big learning experience to me about certain things in life. My friend mortgaged his car on night before Irumbu Thirai release to help me financially. I must really thank my friends, especially producer SR Prabhu for being strong support. He happens to be the major reason behind the film’s release,” said Vishal speaking to media.
Vishal also praised female lead actor Samantha Akkineni and antagonist Arjun Sarja for accepting the role without any inhibitions. “When editor Ruben referred PS Mithran for the script narration, I was quite reluctant as our previous script discussion for another project didn’t work out well. But when he came prepared with the Irumbu Thirai script, it was so much fantastic and engrossing. Arya couldn’t take up the project on the spur of moment due to some reasons. But when PS Mithran suggested me Action King Arjun, I just had my breathing skipped and told him to approach Arjun sir by himself. But sooner, I was so much excited to see that sir had given a nod to this script with some of additional inputs to his characterization… I’m so happy that Samantha broke the myth that actresses after marriages can still be at their best spell,” added Vishal.
