Speaking at the promo of his upcoming flick, Thittivaasal, in which he plays a tribal, Nasser remarked that the caravan/vanity van should not be a status symbol for actors — and producers should provide them only out of necessity to anyone.

“When director Pratap Murali approached me with this script, I was not keen to go on board as they wanted bulk dates. Since I am committed to various movies, I split and give dates. Also, my bad experiences working in small films have taught me to keep away from such films. Either, they get jinxed, or my payments don’t come. But, Thittivaasal’s story was very impressive and they convinced me that they would finish my portions in 12 days. Since the film deals with tribal community who live in the forests, we had to stay in that place. The hotels are very far away from location and my travel would take half of my working time.

Though the producer was ready to get me a caravan, I chose to stay with my entire team of 34 people under one roof in a big hall. Of course, the producer gave me a make-shift room at the corner of the hall.”

He added that those were memorable days as he got lot of friends. While Mahendran and Tanu Shetty play the lead pair, Ajay Ratnam essays a crucial role.
