Speaking to Catch, Jayadev shared his experience as a debut director.
"Making a movie is a team effort, not a one man show. In a movie, the director, actors, technicians, and producer has to work as a single unit. Heirarchy is very strong in movie, but even the person working on the lowest levels are equally important just like the director. Steps of making a movie are perfected over time. So when you get into movies, you either follow the system, or walk out. My father says, movie is a living entity and in order to give you success, movie asks for your life itself. Movie feeds on your commitment, true passion and loyalty. Its so true in my experience"
