Firstly, it is about finding the right producer and then getting the dates of the right artists. The challenge is to finish the product in stipulated time and budget after which getting theatres to screen our film. Finally, making the audience to watch the films in theatres. Lastly, the difficult most part is to ensure that the movie doesn't release on Tamil Rockers,"
Prasanna claims that people hesitate to pay Rs 24 per month when the content would be available for free on Tamil Rockers. Sarcastically, he wants the film industry to partner with Tamil Rockers and sell their content to how much ever money it pays for the products.
