Mohan Raja won the Best Director at the Behindwoods Gold Medal Awards 2015 for his film Thani Oruvan. In his acceptance speech, the passionate director opened his heart and revealed something unheard of till today.
He said, “Thani Oruvan has fetched me innumerable awards. While I am happy with the response and accolades, there is something that has been bothering me. I am happy that Arvind Swami got more plaudits than Jayam Ravi. However, I am saddened by the fact that Siddharth Abhimanyu is being celebrated more than Mithran.
In fact, I had lost sleep over this for many nights and wondered if I had made a wrong film. But the silver lining was nobody questioned me why I killed Siddharth Abhimanyu. I am happy about that.”
