"When we were shooting for Mirugam in Madurai, we saw the rushes of the film at a local theatre. That was the first time I saw myself on the big screen. I liked my portrayal. I saw the full film at Udayam theatre in Chennai along with the audience on the first day of its release. The response was good."
