Taking to Twitter to share pictures of Rajinikanth honouring him with a shawl, director Pradeep Ranganathan, who made his debut as an actor with this film, wrote: "What more can I ask for? It was like to be near a sun. So warm. The tight hug, those eyes, the laugh, the style and the love. What a personality."
