Besides playing the lead role, Kamal Haasan has bankrolled Vikram under his banner Raaj Kamal Films International. The film is a spin-off of Kamal’s character from his 1986 movie Vikram. Earlier, Kamal Haasan commented on the film’s success and said, “If everyone should progress, you need a leader who doesn’t have to worry about the money. When I said that ‘I can earn Rs 300 crore in a snap’, nobody understood it. They thought that I was beating my chest. You can see now it’s coming (Vikram box office collection). I will repay all my loans, I will eat to my heart’s content and I will give whatever I can to my family and friends. After that if I don’t have anything left, I will say I don’t have any more to give. I don’t have to pretend to help others by taking someone else’s money. I don’t want any grand titles. I just want to be a good human being.”
