"Oppam was my 90th film as a director. Now I need just 10 films to complete my century. When I was playing cricket I always wanted to hit a century, but I never succeeded. So at least in cinema, I want to hit a century and that's what I'm thinking now," he told the daily.

Meanwhile, Oppam is still running to packed houses at the Kerala Box Office.
