On winning National Award for Jiggarthanda, Harshan says that awards are important for editors as without them no one will even know that we have worked on this movie. With Karthik Subbaraj and Bobby Simha movies grabbing the headlines, Harshan’s work in the film has not received the acclaim it should have, but as he agrees, it’s on account of the nature of his profession. Editing, he says, is an invisible job. Harshan is really focused and passionate about his work and prefers to be left alone while he is editing. He recently worked as the editor for the Tamil movie Rajini Murugan. Though Harshan is dedicated to his work, he also dreams of directing films one day since he feels that directing a film would make his film journey complete.
