discussion with psychologist
Regarding his character, Vijay told, ‘When I heard this character, it was very scary. Whenever I think it will not happen to me, that is when I really start. I take the character as a challenge and get involved in doing it. The character of serial killer was not easy because the expressions of a normal person had to be shown on the screen, in whose mind the taunt of crime is going on. It was very challenging for me. For this, I also took the help of a psychologist so that I can understand the basic structure of the character.
