“I only had an actor’s perspective of what films were until Mersal happened. But when you’re an assistant director on a salary of ₹10,000 per month, and when, sometimes you may not get the daily allowances after a hard day’s work… (Sighs)… that’s when you realize how hard people have it in the film industry. I learnt those things.”
