Speaking to the media on Saturday, Komal Kumar said, "Comedy roles suit me very well, but I don't have guts to ridicule my own industry people (directors). I've already spoken to producer Suresh and soon I'm going to return him the advance amount. If I agree to star in the film reluctantly, I would spoil its quality. Even I would not do justice to director Guruprasad's dream role."
He added, "So I can't play the role. I would participate in the running race, only if I'm confident of winning it. Otherwise, I won't. Opting out from the film is my personal decision. Nobody like my brother Jaggesh or any other industry person has forced me to do that."
