Director Hari Gopalakrishnan, who is awaiting the release of forthcoming Tamil film Poojai, says he gives prime importance and respect to the producer who invests money and time in a film.
"Every extra minute while shooting will cost a producer his money. As a director, I'm aware of that and hence, always try to finish all my films on or before time. I had asked for 100 days to shoot Poojai, but I wrapped it up in 90 days," said Hari.
"Every director should respect a producer for investing and money and time in a film. I think this should be of the highest order of importance," he said.
Poojai, which releases in cinemas on Wednesday, features Vishal Krishna Reddy, Shruti Haasan, Sathyaraj, Soori and Mukesh Tiwari in important roles.
The film will simultaneously release in Telugu as Poojai.
