He may be churning out laugh riots at the box office, but this soft spoken man is not in a funny mood when he's at work.
Priyadarshan, who is known as a soft spoken director and a man of few words, is actually a tough task master. And vouching for his tough image is none other than the main lead of DE DANA DAN Akshay Kumar.
Akki, whose film has already created buzz admits, "Priyan sir is actually an iron man. We were almost 26 artistes at any time on sets of DE DANA DAN and Priyan sir had a rule that everyone would report on sets at 9 am even if some of them were not required to be in that particular scene. Moreover, there were no special rooms or arrangements for any one of us. We all had to wait in the same waiting area and depending on various combinations we would be called in. I have worked with so many directors but he is the only one who could make all of us wait without anyone daring to complain. To handle so many senior artistes in space and time is not easy", says the actor.
The ace filmmaker who has shown that he can juggle between serious cinema and a laugh riot with perfect ease is all set for another glory at the box office with DE DANA DAN.
