At the teaser launch of Sattam Oru Iruttarai's remake, director Shankar was the special attraction. The entire cast of the movie was also present including the three lovely lead ladies - Pia Bajpai, Reema Sen and Bindu Madhavi.
Shankar spoke glowingly about his former guru SA Chandrasekhar, who directed the original 1982 superhit film. He said that during his five year tenure as SAC's assistant, he learned the traits of discipline and punctuality. He also vouched that young director Sneha Britto would also have benefited by SAC's almost military-like discipline, during her stint as an AD to SAC.
