The production house is a place to nurture talent and create opportunities for new directors. I am very happy that they liked my story. Similarly, I have been given full freedom to act with creative freedom.”
“We are currently in talks with rising stars and technicians in the film industry. I am thankful to Subhaskaran sir for this opportunity. It has created great excitement and a great responsibility for me. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Tamil Kumaran, who has been a great support in realizing my dream of becoming a director,” he added.
Vijay’s fans took to the comments section to congratulate him and Jason. One person wrote, “The cub is here All the best Sanjay ❤️” Another person added, “Congrats #JasonSanjay Hope you will touch heights in your Career ❤️” “Best wishes to #JasonSanjay.
