Vikranth added, “Susee sir gave me an identity through Pandiya Nadu. So, when he wanted me to work in part 2 of VKK, I gladly agreed without asking any questions.” However, though he was a cricketer and played league matches he says he didn’t even know how many players would be there in kabaddi. “On the first day rehearsals, I saw real life kabaddi players who were brought to coach us. I was literally taken back.
The kind of strength and energy needed for the sport was very high. I didn’t expect this. Over a period of time, I picked up its thread. The entire team was very supportive.”
