Unlocking Jailer Insights
During the electrifying Jailer music launch, Rajinikanth unfurled a candid behind-the-scenes account. With a playful smile, he reminisced about a particular shooting moment. With a mischievous glint, he shared, "Nelson, our ingenious director, had me repeat a single shot a whopping eight to nine times. Imagine, it was for a specific expression in front of the talented Ramya Krishnan. Even Ramya herself started feeling a tad awkward as I gave it another go and again. This legendary Padayappa, yours truly, momentarily lost his composure in front of Neelambari, all thanks to Nelson's relentless pursuit of perfection. You see, with Nelson, it's a determined quest until he captures that elusive magic on film."
