He wrote, “Maanaadu is a film that was made with so much effort and faith in god. I wanted to make those who love me happy and now it has paid off. Maanaadu is running successfully across the globe. My thanks to producer Suresh Kamatchi, director Venkat Prabhu, all technicians, Maanaadu team, my parents, distributors, theatre owners, friends from the film industry, press and media, and my beloved fans.”

But, you [fans] did not let it touch the ground and showed so much love. You have made it a success. My thanks and wishes (sic).”
