Selvaraghavan: I was happy when I was poor
In his conversation with Sudhir Srinivasan about his recent release Nenjam Marappathillai, Selvaraghavan opens about his take on the relationship between money and happiness
Director Selvaraghavan, in his recent interview with Cinema Express, says, "I don't have the happiness I had while I was in poverty." While talking about his film Nenjam Marappathillai, which features SJ Suryah as a pompous and rich industrialist, the director shared his take on money and happiness.
He says, "Dhanush, my two sisters, and I come from below the poverty line, and I can say this is my finding: There is no realtionship between money and happiness. You will realise that in a few years of getting rich. You can just be happy if you want to. I want to make a movie about it someday."
The Mayakkam Enna director also touched upon many other topics including script writing, his relationship with Yuvan Shankar Raja, and more. Watch the entire conversation here:
