May be, the scenarios would have been entirely different if ‘Kavalan’ was lined up between ‘Kuruvi-Villu’ & ‘Vettaikaran-Sura’ phase. Indeed, it was supposed to happen as Siddique & Vijay discussed the script of ‘Kaavalan’ much prior to shooting original version ‘Bodyguard’. The actor in his interaction with media channels opened up that Siddique approached him with the script before couple of years. But due to his busy schedules, things couldn’t happen as it was planned.
‘Later Siddique sir requested that he would complete the Malayalam version first as it can get things easier for him and then commence the Tamil remake’ adds Vijay.
When asked about his onscreen chemistry with Asin, Vijay replied jocularly that he isn’t aware about such chemistry and physics, but has done what was directed by Siddique.
