Talking about working with the International filmmaker, Dhanush said, “Ken Scott is a perfectionist. He is very particular about how he wants a scene and I’ve learned a lot from him. One very important thing I learned is to do the same kind of expression in repeated takes” “You know, no matter how many takes one does, to do the same thing again and again, it is really difficult to do the same thing repeatedly. That is something that I have understood and learned to do with his film” added Dhanush.
