Prabhudheva's involvement in each and every scene is amazing: Sakthi Chidambaram

"When I got to collaborate with Prabhudheva master in 2002, I developed a bond with him, and this is what brought us here. This sequel wasn't an intentional one. I thought of an idea a couple of years ago and pitched an idea to Prabhudheva master. He loved it, and I developed the story accordingly. I am fortunate to have a producer like Amma Siva. Prabhudheva's involvement in each and every scene is amazing. I hope our friendship continues. We are hoping to bring part 3 and 4 too in future," says Charlie Chaplin 2 director Sakthi Chidambaram.

Prabhudheva sir is a powerhouse of talent: Nikki Galrani

"This movie is so close to my heart, and I had the best time with the team. We were like a family. Prabhu uncle plays my father. Whenever I think of him, I always get reminded of his love and the food he serves at his home. Thank you for the great music, Amresh. I never thought my song Chinna Machchan would be a hit. Never expected it would reach more than one million mark. Sakthi sir is quite a jovial person. He made our work so easier. Doing a sequel to the original is always a responsibility. I think we have fulfilled every expectation. Prabhudheva sir is a powerhouse of talent. He turned a lyricist with this film. I got to learn a lot from you, sir. I am not a trained actor or a dancer. But dancing with Prabhudheva master was so much fun. I completed four years in Tamil cinema. I am glad you all have been supporting me throughout," says Charlie Chaplin 2 actor Nikki Galrani.

Charlie Chaplin 2 will be an out-and-out entertainer: Aravind Akash

"I have performed as a background dancer with Prabhudheva master in Kaadhala Kaadhala. But I never thought I would share screen space with him. Charlie Chaplin 2 will be an out-and-out entertainer. I am a huge fan of Prabhudheva sir, and will be grateful for this opportunity. It is a positive film. We don't have any outdated comedy portions. It is all going to be contemporary," says Charlie Chaplin 2 actor Aravind Akash.
