First Time Directors Have Winning Attitude: Ashok Selvan

Tamil actor Ashok Selvan, who has worked with three debutant directors in back-to-back films such as Soodhu Kavvum, Pizza: Villa and Thegidi, says he finds a winning attitude in them.

"I haven't worked with experienced directors yet, and therefore, I can't compare them with newcomers. But one thing that I have noticed in first time directors is their urge to win. They work with a winning attitude and I admire it," Ashok told IANS.

Mysskin On Promotional Spree

He is travelling from one city to another, sticking posters of his film himself and thanking viewers. Filmmaker Mysskin is doing all this to promote his recently released Onayum Aatukuttiyum as he feels post-release marketing is equally important for a movie's success.

"Some films, despite rave reviews, don't draw audiences to cinemas. This is because of the limited shows of that particular film in a theatre or the lack of aggressive promotions. Therefore, it's important for such films to continue promoting post-release," Mysskin told IANS.
