did you select Sri Raghava as director for this film?
I was impressed with the trailer of Kadal Kondein. I signed
Sri Raghava even before the release of his first film 'Kadal
is the reason behind selecting your son Ravi Krishna as hero?
We wanted to cast Madhavan as hero for this film. But he was
busy with other projects hence we could not get immediate
dates. I wanted to introduce Ravi Krishna as hero after a
couple of years. But Sri Raghava insisted that he would introduce
Ravi Krishna now itself through '7/G Brindavan Colony'.
kind of response did you get for this film?
Mani Ratnam complimented the director and hero after watching
this film. Bala Chandar was also impressed. Everybody in film
industry praised 7GBC.
made 7GBC different from other films?
The scenes and story of 7GBC is inspired by the real life
incidents of director Sri Raghava. Since he has gone through
similar incident, there is more conviction and compassion
from the film director which translated on the screen.
worked well for Ravi Krishna in this film?
He has innocence in his face. He could get the sympathy of
audiences with his histrionics and characterization. He did
really well towards the climax of 7GGBC. And Ravi Krishna
is not camera shy. He took one-month training in acting workshop
is the range of success of 7GBC?
7GBC was released with 35 prints and it completed 50 days
in all 35 centers it was released. As of today, the total
prints number is 80. Increasing of prints number from 35 to
80 tells how successful this film is.
re-recording of 7GBC is excellent. Did you take any precautions?
We imported musicians from abroad to do the re-recording (RR)
of this film. It took around 2 months to complete RR. We also
picturized the theme song of the film by spending 20 lakhs.
But did not include in the final version because of the length

He would be acting bilinguals to be directed by Jyothi Krishna
and Radha Mohan.
