  • He has won Raintree International Film Festival-Best Feature Film award for his Tamil directorial debut ‘Narai Ezhudhum Suyasaridham’ (2016) and the Best Dialogue Writer award for the Tamil film ‘Vikram Vedha’ (2017).
  • During an interview, he talked about working with the Indian superstar Rajinikanth in the Tamil film ‘Kaala’ (2018). He said,

    The moment I got to know I was playing Rajini sir’s son, fear started to creep in. I wasn’t happy for sure. He doesn’t act, but he creates an atmosphere where he would explain what is required. There was also the added pressure of working with the Superstar. Sir was supposed to leave after that shot, but he saw Ranjith sir taking a close-up of mine. He pulled up a chair and sat in front of me. I was sweating profusely and was on the verge of tears. But I regained myself since it was a make or break moment. When the shot was over, they didn’t say ‘cut’ and I was standing there. Then, I saw someone through my peripheral vision. It was Rajini sir. He hugged and kissed me and said I did well.”
