Selvaraghavan: As an actor, Suriya is rocking in NGK. Rakul Preet Singh is an amazing performer.
SR Prabhu : I thank Suriya anna fans for their patience. The grand function Suriya Anna fans asking for will be the success meet, where the fans will be invited. Prabhu mentions about Suriya’s fans and how they used to always ask him for updates relentlessly on Twitter. He also revealed Movie similar to NGK story released. Hence they changed the script. He says NGK will be worth the wait and satisfy all fans. It’s all positive, he says.
Yuvan: My combo with Selvaraghavan always breaks new grounds, and so will NGK. I’m waiting for the fans’ feedback about NGK Audio.
Editor KL Praveen : NGK has lot of long single take shots. I watched 2nd half. Was very emotional after seeing Suriya’s performance in the climax. The film is a political drama and will have Selvaraghavan’s unique stamp. “NGK final runtime being locked would be under 2 hrs 30 min. With Yuvan’s RR, it should be elevated to the next level.
DOP Sivakumar Vijayan: “Theater la karagoshama paathu enjoy panna vendiya padam”
Sai Pallavi :Director Selvaraghavan expectations are sky high. Even when I took 10 takes or more, Suriya sir was always patient and made me feel comfortable.. Doing NGK was like going back to school for me. It was a grt learning (& unlearning) institution for me and I wanted the shoot to keep going on and on.”Suriya sir is one in a million. I’ve always been his biggest fan. I’ve observed him from up close.. His humility, hard work, passion were eye openers for me. I observed how Suriya prepares for his shot and also calls every one in the set as Anna.
Suriya: Begins his speech asking all to observe a 1 min silence for the recent blast victims in SriLanka. He also thanked his fans for the love and encouragement. Suriya calls Yuvan’s music timeless and says his music will cut across generations. “After Raja sir and Rahman sir, Yuvan holds a very important place in music”. Suriya recalls 2002 when he saw the song visuals of Kadhal Konden prerelease. He calls Selvaraghavan ‘ahead of times’ and states that Selva is one of the few directors he openly asked to work with. “I want to work with you again”.
Suriya says he respects Sai Pallavi’s passion and says that’s why she’s on top today. He said she used to actually cry when she couldn’t get some of her takes right. Suriya says that the industry strike and health issues of some important team members are the reasons for the delays in NGK release. He says he has almost completed dubbing and revealed “Selvaraghavan told me a small plotline during the dubbing process, it was so interesting. I’m waiting for him to finish it. I’m saying it again, I wish to work with him again”.
