    49: There was a deliberate campaign against Remo | Sivakarthikeyan | Baradwaj Rangan

    Sivakarthikeyan talks about his growth from Marina to Velaikkaran, and how he did not expect this success. About the comedian-to-hero trajectory that even legends like Nagesh did not attempt. About what success means to him, whether it has changed him. About his fans and his responsibility towards them. He talks about his serious side, and how he followed Mohan Raja's lead to get into a "dramatic" zone, and whether fans will accept him this way. He talks about PC Sreeram's contribution to Remo. He talks about social responsibility and addresses the "stalking" allegations against his films. He talks about his salary and how he reduced it for Velaikkaran. He talks about stand-up videos and how they are never going to replace the theatre experience. He talks about his favourite comedians (Goundamani, Vadivelu) and his favourite comedy scene (the "Vazhaipazham" scene). He talks about his favourite films (Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam, Edhir Neechal) and his favourite role (Velaikkaran) and what it taught him.
