“Ratsasan getting honoured on global panorama is a big boon to all of us in the team. This is not something to celebrate by myself for everyone in the team has contributed to a greater extent. I am also exhilarated for Ghibran’s musical score having its acclaims now,” director Ramkumar said in a statement to the press. Music director Ghibran said, “This honour completely belongs to my director Ramkumar and producer Dilli Babu and everyone in the team for banking their hopes on me unconditionally. More than toasting for celebrations, it’s adding up additional responsibilities on my musical journey as I want to retain the stature that Ratsasan has given me now.”
“All praise goes to each and everyone in the cast and crew, who have been the major reasons for getting Ratsasan acknowledged to a greater degree. A Tamil movie getting appreciated and honoured at a prestigious film festival like LATCA motivates me personally to push the bars and deliver more promising films from our industry,” said producer G Dilli Babu, Axess Film Factory.
Recently, actor Dhanush was infuriated at how critically acclaimed Tamil films like Merku Thodarchi Malai, Pariyerum Perumal, Ratsasan and Vada Chennai were not getting recognition at the national level. He felt that the jury of the National Awards failed to notice the effort behind such films.
