He said, "I am sorry Mammukka. You have even asked me that sometimes I forget your age. Then I replied to Mammukka that for me, you are aged only between 45 to 50...I have only seen Mammukka's age through the character which he is playing in Turbo, and I have made him do almost everything which the character demands him to do. I have even troubled him by fixing the shoot schedule for 3AM and 4AM in the morning. My biggest trust for the movie is Mammukka." For the unversed, Turbo, has been mounted as an action-comedy, a switch up from the veteran actor's last role, that of the dark-arts practicing antagonist Kodumon Potti in Bramayugam.
