If Meera Jasmine has confessed to having a good opinion about a director openly, it has got to be about Vikraman, with whom she has worked for ‘Mariyadhai‘.
“I was surprised when he said he wanted to do a remix of an MGR film in ‘Mariyadhai‘. I immediately asked him, ‘Sir, are you the kind of a director to do a remix? Later did I then realize that both he and Vijayakanth are diehard fans of MGR. In fact, Vikraman had done one of the earliest remixes in Tamil, “Aadaludan Padalai Kettu” in his film, ‘Pudhu Vasantham‘,” says the actress.
The troublesome times that Meera gave her directors seem to be a thing of the past. She is also working on director Thyagarajan’s ‘Malayoor Mambattiyaan’ and the director has only sweet things to say about Meera. “She never asked for a caravan, never minded the rains, never delayed our shooting and never threw any tantrums,” says Thyagarajan.
Prashanth and Meera Jasmine play the roles immortalized by Thyagarajan and Saritha in the yesteryear blockbuster ‘Malayoor Mambattiyaan’.
