Tamil film director Susi Ganeshan, who has directed his first Hindi film "Shortcut Romeo", a remake of his own film "Thiruttu Payale", says a lot of filmmakers had been approaching him for the movie's rights. But he decided to remake it himself.
"It's very nice to work with Neil and Puja. This is a very commercial entertainer, it's a remake of my old superhit Tamil film 'Thiruttu Payale' (2006). That time, it was a super-duper hit. Now these days, many Bollywood superhits are remakes of south films and many people asked me also for the rights to this film. But I wanted to produce and direct this film," Ganeshan said here on sets of a song of the film.
He is all praises for Neil, who Ganeshan says, portrays a combination of bad and good wonderfully.
"As a performer, he has touched all the notches. Acting a bad guy is easy and acting like a good guy is easy. But this mix up of both is very difficult, and (so are) the expressions and nuances of acting. A lot of appreciation goes to him," said the filmmaker.
The film is releasing June 21.
