A Director becomes praiseworthy not just because of the good films, the name he earns on and off the sets of the movie counts a lot. From all his coworkers, this has come out constantly.
A Director known for his punctuality, is very careful about not putting a hole to the producers pocket, he ensures every single technician on the movie set deserves the apt attention, which proportionally in turn helps them to concentrate and dedicate themselves to the movie.
Even at a recent TV show, when quipped to remark about the success of Singam 2 , even before the movie was released, the director calmly denied, as it would be an unfair judgment. Even Surya has exclaimed many a time in awe of Hari‘s dedication and honest attempt at making a clean cinema.
This all comes in no surprise, as the man himself was a wannabe police officer, however could not become one due to various reasons.
