Sharing about her working experience with Mani Ratnam, she says, “First and foremost, Mani Ratnam is the one who can handle so many star-casts in a film. I was completely amazed to get a call from Mani Ratnam"s office. Later, as I reached his office, the ace filmmaker appreciated my performance in Paruthiveeran and insisted that I must continue establishing my potentials in a similar way. He was into the script of Villain a.k.a Raavanan as he said I have a role to play, that of Vennila. In simple terms, he labeled my character as the – Color of Villain, as only my scenes have a colorful backdrop while the rest of the film is shot in gloomy tones…"
Finally, the actress pleads with everyone to forget the factors like a modernized adaptation of 'Ramayana" and just watch it as a Mani Ratnam film.
