Sam says that he did a lot of preparation for his role. He says, “Since I play a badminton player, I underwent training for it. Also, the film is set in Madurai, and I was born and brought up in Chennai. So, I really had to up my game when it came to picking up the slang and imbibing their culture. So, I went to Madurai before the shoot to study people there. Since Thamarai is from Madurai, he helped me, too.”
Though he has two other offers, Sam says that he first wants this film to come out. “I want to take it slow as I am still a newcomer. This film has come out really well, and I will wait for the feedback from audiences. I want this film to give me a new identity,” he says.
