It’s worth mentioning that a few years ago Lyca Productions was interested in backing Marudhanayagam. “Subaskaran, Chairman of Lyca Group, has told me, ‘If you just make a phone call and say ‘Yes’, we can start Marudhanayagam anytime’. But, the massive logistics involved in the film as far as the pre-production work is concerned is quite exhaustive. Just because Subaskaran is willing to produce the film doesn’t mean I can play around with his funds without proper planning and execution,” said the Chachi 402 actor.
