Vikram and Prithviraj were interviewed by a national daily on their experiences in working in the Mani Ratnam directed Raavanan. Both the actors recalled how dangerous it was during the shooting. Prithviraj also recalled several risky stunt scenes and said he used to ask Aishwarya Rai if the wounds she had were real or made-up.
Vikram pointed out a scene in the film where he required to take a 100-ft dive into the Hogenakkal and revealed that the scene was filmed using the dupe Balram, as he did not want to take the risk. When asked which role was better? Vikram said, “Dev is the star and Veera, the actor.”
