“Honestly when they came to narrate the film I was very clear about it – I am not doing this film. But they ( Dhanush and Soundarya) were like, we still want to narrate the film. But I told them, I was still not doing the film. After they narrated it to me, I was like “It’s in Tamil” So they were like,”Ma’am 50% of your dialogues are in English, 50% it will not matter if you speak Chinese, please do the film. So the way they put it, the way they reassured me. Ma’am we will work with you, we will work around you to make sure it’s seamless so that it doesn’t feel like work. And at the same time, whatever you don’t like, whatever you feel is not working, if at any point you feel it’s too much, we will change it.” She revealed how the first two days were hell because she had to learn dialogues in Tamil! She couldn’t sleep because of it! Dhanush and Soundarya would read out the dialogues to her repeatedly.
