Siddharth’s Jigarthanda is ready for release later this month. Speaking about the film, Siddharth, says, ‘ I was amazed at Karthik’s handling of Pizza. The moment I saw the film, I congratulated him. There developed a bonding between us. When he approached me with the script of Jigarthanda, I had no hesitation in accepting the offer.
‘Jigarthanda will help me shed the chooclate-boy tag. It is a gangster film. Karthik Subburaj’s has come out with a different film. Lakshmi Menon, Simha, Karuna among others gave their best.’
He says, ‘ We bonded like one film and worked together. It was all fun at the sets’.
Lakshmi Menon, who could not attend the audio launch was present at the media meet and said that she had her final plus one exams which kept her away from the event.
