Speaking to media-persons, Haasan heaped praises on ace music directors, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and said that they were humble inspite of being supremely talented artists.
"Shankar Ehsan Loy apart from being musicians, which they are extraordinary musicians and extraordinary people. It is very difficult for three extremely talented people to be so giving, not only to each other but also to anybody who is willing to collaborate with them. So that was a great enjoyment for me and they give you the feeling that you composed the music. Whoever it is, whether the director knows music or not," said Haasan.
The film features Pooja Kumar an American actress, producer, model and television hostess, who was crowned Miss India USA at the beginning of her career.

Haasan said that he was thrilled about his latest project with Oscar winner Hollywood producer, Barrie Osborne, though the project is in its initial phase.
"See it is not a small film. It is a big film. Apart from the responsibility of it, the prep will take time. The prep will start only from the script. The script is not even first draft yet. It will go through a couple of more rewrites atleast. By the way he has seen ‘Visvharoopam’ four times," said Haasan.
