Working with iconic actor Dhanush has always been a great pleasure as our previous collaborations have been successful. When director Arun Matheswaran narrated the script to me and Dhanush, both of us were excited, and wanted to materialize in a grand scale. I have always admired the director Arun’s unconventional thinking and maverick filmmaking methodologies to deliver exceptional movies are extraordinary. When he narrated the script, I was immensely impressed with his idea, and his engrossing screenwriting. It’s great to have music director GV Prakash, whose Midas touch will escalate the stature of this movie. Every single actor and technician in this movie has already carved a niche of excellence, and their contribution is going to elevate ‘Captain Miller’ to a greater magnitude.”
