Speaking about her role, Keerthy Suresh said in a press statement, â€śSaani Kaayidham is a complete departure from any of my past work, I play a raw and intense character. It was my role and director Arunâ€™s distinctive storytelling style and vision that interested me to be a part of this hard-hitting film. To top it all off, I had director Selvaraghavan as my co-star â€“ couldnâ€™t get better! I have put my heart and soul into this role.â€ť
Director-turned-actor, Selvaraghavan said, â€śSaani Kaayidham is special to me as I faced the camera for the first time for this film, and to be able to portray a powerful character is a brilliant opportunity. It was also wonderful sharing screen space with the talented Keerthy Suresh, who has given an explosive performance.
