Silambarasan says he is entering a new phase with ‘AAA’
STR explained his new philosophy of life and how to be happy to team up, even if all his films fail
A week before the launch of their AAA Silambarasan STR invites us to an interview. It is true that his image of bad boy, he chose to have last midnight. Extracts:
AAA seems to be a movie that celebrates the artist in you, with you playing four roles.
Whatever I do, I never receive a price, which is not even a criterion. I approach different cinema now. Earlier, I would make a serious film for movie critics or happy music for fans. My choice always differed way. But I think this phase is over. From there, I’m only interested in two things. A movie for the first time should excite me in every way. I have to enjoy my thinking and this should be a movie I could have done. Secondly, it must be a movie that my fans would also do. This phase begins with the AAA.
What about AAA lights up?
I mean when adhik (the director) describes a character as a villain villain. I had the impression that this is what people expect of me anyway. They expect another ‘Beep song’ Me but they forget that I also did a ‘Song Vow’. I had a ‘Spiritual Win’ but people liked ‘Song Trend’ better. At the end of the day, we are not there to carry an “anna dhanam”, so we give them what they sell.
How to add adhik to that?
It is someone who was there during the first performances of Osthe or Silambattam Dum whistles and whistles for me. He was a fan of mine and he knows my fans better than me. He delivered only that with AAA. ” Yen Pulla, yenna madri dan irukum ‘.
Does it take a lot of pressure?
I am further from the pressure. It’s really necessary.
But when you start making movies for yourself and for those who love you, it does not work comfortably?
Not at all. It was easier before. I felt like I knew how to make a movie. But now I try to defy myself because I want my fans to enjoy all the movies. It is certainly more difficult, but I am happy now. Earlier, I was doing all this for people who did not care. I’m happy, even if my movie shows in only four theaters now. I’ll be happy even if my movies go, so I can do whatever I want.
What caused this drastic change in you?
I’m not here to prove anything to anyone. It seemed like I’ve always struggled with everyone, including myself. Then I realized, what should I fight? What Jesus said to show the other cheek does not make sense to me, but now. If you want to slap me, go ahead. I’m not trying to be the next Rajini and I make a rat race shorter. Even if I stay, it’s because I love him … not because I want to come first.
Are you satisfied with the new Simbu?
I’m glad I changed. He would have been admitted to an asylum if he had not. I got to know what I really am. Is not that what you call your spiritual journey?
People say that you are not punctual in sets, but they always manage to finish their work before others.
I think I’m going to be in trouble if I start going to the games on time (laughs). Even if I go back, does not it do justice to my role? If I’m so irresponsible, then why do these people still want to make a movie with me? Did I beg you to take me in your movie?
Even when they talk about their talent, they say they do not do it justice.
