His films, including "Theri," "Mersal," and "Bigil," have not only dominated the box office but have also garnered recognition and awards, solidifying his position as one of the most sought-after directors in the industry.

Recently, at an event, when asked about Pan Indian Films, he replied, "As a professional person from the film fraternity...I don't like the world. Pan India, India is one and unity in diversity is one. Language is just a communication medium; They are not knowledge. All films everyone sees,, for example,, KGF is the biggest hit all over after KGF Yash is the Indian Superstar, Allu Arjun Sir - Pushpa, Vijay Sir - Villu...So I think we are one, and we never like to call it Pan India films or cross-over cinema; we like to call it Indian Film an Indian Film fraternity"
