Speaking about the journey of Velaikkaran, Sivakarthikeyan says, “I am a strong believer of ‘Luck’. Of course, ‘Luck’ can give you opportunities, but its hard work that will nurture your success. I feel lucky enough for having got an opportunity to be a part of Velaikkaran. I would say with complete pride that ‘Content’ is the hero in Velaikkaran and we as actors and technicians have given our best to be on par with it. Such is the amazing premise and script conceptualized by Mohan Raja sir. The film is set against the backdrop of labour class, who are actually the heart and soul of any society. Everyone will easily reflect and relate with the story, which we believe would be the greatest favour for Velaikkaran.” (ALSO READ: Velaikkaran is a challenging film: Mersal and Vivegam editor Ruben)
