While doing his role of assistant director of writer Sundar C, Singampuli had suggested the basic plot for the movie Unnaithedi to him. After that, Sundar developed the script in a span of one week and then told about his plans to
Ajith Kumar. Ajith was not convinced initially but then agreed to act in this romantic story without any expectations. He showed his good nature by saying that he would act in Singampuli’s directorial venture if Unnaithedi turns out a winner.
Ajith lived up to his word to work with Singampulii again; he worked with him in the action movie Red in 2002, a story which told the tale of an activist based in Madurai.
