Chiyaan Vikram and Manirathnam waited till the last

Actor Vikram recalls the moment when he along with Ravanan’s director Mani Ratnam and Suhasini Mani Ratnam took the centre stage soon after the screening of the film at the Venice Film Festival recently. The audience, about 600-700 people, gave thundering applause to the trio, he said.

Vikram revealed that they had intended to stay on for the screening till the Usure Poguthey song as they were scared of the reaction the film would garner, but realized that the audiences were engrossed in the film so that they decided on staying till the last.

It may be recalled that Mani Ratnam was honored with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award during this event.

Vikram was quoted as saying, “Right from the pre-awards party to the red carpet welcome and the amazing response from the audience, everything was just perfect. Even a few bigwigs, who didn't really give us much bhaav before the screening, came to us later and asked if they could have pictures taken with us. My character Veera was well-received, and many started addressing me as Veera. Now, that's a great appreciation for any actor in a foreign land. I was never this excited before.”
