However, a fan criticized the filmmaker by saying that he is trying to get the call sheet of Sivakarthikeyan by praising him. He said that these kind of comparisons makes fans to fight with each other to which Seenu Ramasamy said that everyone who are coming from bottom are Dhonis. The filmmaker said that it is not for call sheet but a mark sheet for Siva.

On the work front, Seenu Ramasamy is busy making “Maamanithan” with Vijay Sethupathi whereas Sivakarthikeyan is all set to appear in “Doctor” and “Ayalan”. It is notable that Sivakarthikeyan acted as a failed cricketer in “Kanaa” which was made under his own production.
