Portraying Ajith Kumar in a different role in Mankatha, director Venkat Prabhu has done 'Biriyani' with Karthi, Hansika and Premgi Amaran in lead roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed music for the film and this is 100th movie. Last evening, the entire crew was present for the media interaction to promote the film.

Shedding light on the film, Venkat Prabhu said, "When we started working on Biriyani, I was sure about offering a new look for Karthi. In fact, Vasuki Bhaskar was keen on making a changeover for this film. Ramki sir makes his comeback with the film and we cannot say anything on this film. He plays the role of Nasser's son-in-law. Hansika and Maandi Thakkar have played the female lead roles. Maandi's role in the film will be the absolute turning point and the screenplay gets racier with this one."

When asked, if it's an entertainer, why did the censor board committee members pass 'U/A' certificate for this film? "The film doesn't carry any violence scenes, but has some mature themes like alcohol consumption, flirting with girls, which may not be appropriate for audience below certain age. We will somehow request to reconsider and get 'U' certificate for this film."

"Many were asking me why didn't I play a modern guy role after Paiyya. This is merely because I didn't get any such proper offers to perform. This is one of the best films in my career that I have enjoyed working through the process. Me, Venkat Prabhu, Premgi Amaran and Yuvan Shankar Raja studied in the same school and we are friends from then. The film opens with break-up of a relationship and from then the story takes a turn. Hansika is a very comfortable actress to work with and she performed every scene without any hesitation. Maandi Thaakar, Punjabi based actress has done a fabulous job. Right before every shot, she would learn the dialogues by heart. I am a diehard fan of Ramki and grew up watching his movies. It's a big pleasure for me to work with him. Yuvan scored music for my first film and this is 100th movie. His musical score will be one of the major highlights in this film," said Karthi.
