Por Thozhil director remembers Sarath Babu

Vignesh Raja made his directorial debut with Por Thozhil. Recently taking to X (formerly Twitter), the director remembered working with Sarath Babu and wrote how his casting was crucial for the film. “Hours before my first meeting with late Mr Sarath Babu to narrate the script of Por Thozhil, one of my producers CV Sarathi told me 'if we do not get Sarath Babu, we do not have a movie." We all know how critical it was to get him on board. He was going to be our trump card,” Vignesh Raja wrote.

Sharing photos of himself with the late actor, the director also said that they shot 12 days with him and it was a learning curve for him and how he was a director's delight while shooting amid difficult locations and odd times.
