Music director Justin Prabhakaran said, “I am an ardent fan of Yogi Babu and to work for his film is a delight… My favourite song in the film the one that comes in retro style featuring the look alike of TMS, MSV and Vaali sir. MSV’s son has crooned the song.
Director Muthu Kumaran said, “Yogi Babu and I have been close friends and have been roommates for a very long time. We discussed this script before many years and to see it getting materialized today is a blessing. The film is a fantasy subject based on Lord Yama and is narrated with fun filled moments. Actually, I narrated the story casually to Producer Ranganathan asking him to refer me new producers. However, he surprised me saying that he is ready to produce it by himself. Art Director has done a colossal job with his set works and the costume designing has been done greatly. My other film ‘Kanni Raasi’ featuring Vimal and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar in lead role was completed in 45 days and we managed to wrap up ‘Dharma Prabhu’ in 40 days. Yogi Babu’s good hearted nature is what has made him big today. There were times, when we would wait for him to bring 300 rupees remuneration from Vijay TV ‘Lollu Sabha’ shooting and we would cook food. Today to see him successful gives us joy.
Yogi Babu said, “The film has two heroes, one is played by me and another by Sam, which involved the earth episodes. Myself and director Muthu Kumaran have been friends for 15 years and what all he told is true. We have stayed and journeyed together in many situations with and without food. Today we are happy that our dreams have come true. Since, both Muthu Kumaran and Sam Anton both happen to be my friends, I had accepted to shoot for both Dharma Prabhu and Gurkha at the same time that I couldn’t sleep for 45 days. The role of Lord Yama is something exceptional as we get that attitude as soon as wearing the makeup. I could feel it throughout the shooting. I am sure this film will be one among the special movies in my career. So far, I haven’t demanded any big remuneration from my producers and have always adjusted for the sake of their well being.”
