    Initially i gave auditions for the role of Dheepan, a senior Sri Lankan Tamil fighter who uses diplomacy to achieve the cause of liberation, but for couple of months i didn’t receive any calls from them, so i thought they might have found someone else. Suddenly one day i got a call from the team and they wanted me to do this Chellam character, for me being a part of family man is an honor, since part 1 was a hit so, i said whatever the character is, i am ready, without knowing that this character will get this much of love and recognition from everyone.
