Director Krishnakumar Ramakumar of ‘Kaadhal Enbadhu Kannula Heart Irukkura Emoji’ said, “Being a man, to a certain extent I understand our perspective on love and romantic relationships. Here I was given a challenge to showcase love and romance from a woman’s point of view, which required me to present a new and opposite perspective on the same subject. I had to research the shift in perspective which helped me not just with my film-making but also to understand the women in my real-life better.”
Director Akshay Sundher of ‘Margazhi’ said, “It’s a great feeling to be a part of the Modern Love Chennai family alongside veteran filmmakers. Working with Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja was a dream come true and it was a life changing experience. Love is something that cannot be contained in a boundary of just a few words, but if I had to explain it from the context of ‘Margazhi’, love is acceptance – acceptance of what is, what has been, what can or will be and what may never be.”
