I have always been interested in direction. I can say that I became a cinematographer without realizing. I used to photograph and draw. My brother is a cameraman and can claim that my entry into cinematography was circumstantial as I was constantly exposed to his work. But I always wanted to be a director and tell stories. If you see my films, they all will be different from each other be it Citizen or Kannathil Muthamittaal or 7aum arivu or Kandukondein Kandukondein or Minsara Kanavu or Boys. The reason behind this is I try to do cinematography for the story. Direction is an extension of this.
