The film, which has emerged a huge success, also faced some opposition. In response to this, my friends from the film industry, actors, actresses, directors, film bodies such as the South Indian Film Artists Association, Tamil Film Producers' Council, national-level political leaders, heads of regional political parties, party representatives, friends from the media industry and my fans, both male and female, expressed huge support. I express my heartfelt gratitude to everybody for having supported the film and for having made it an overwhelming success."
