Vijay Sethupathi began his speech thanking the press on the behalf of films like Pariyerum Perumal, and Ratsasan, apart from 96. The actor, who went on to talk about the cancellation of the early morning shows, said "I don't have any problem with Vishal over the release issue. Whatever has reached the press is hardly 5% of the truth. Though a film turns out to be a hit, the collection that finally reaches the producer is saddening. Certain issues can't be resolved by opening up to the audience, only the actions of the people involved in it can make a difference."

    The "96" movie Director could have shown the School Security in the reunion day. That would have given some more beauty to the film. Ramesh
