Chennai: Tamil actor and superstar Thalapathy Vijay, who enjoys a huge fanbase across South India, revealed that he was worried to work with director Lokesh Kanagaraj in Master.

Vijay who was present for the audio launch of the movie Master in Chennai on Monday, said, unlike other directors, Kanagaraj walked up to him and explained the movie scene by scene instead of handing him a script.

"I was surprised as Kanagaraj works without a scene list or a script. He does not believe in that concept and I was worried and said to myself how I am going to work with him for four to five months," said Vijay.

Star actor Vijay also showered praises on Kanagaraj on the path to becoming a director of this level.

"From being a bank manager to a director for Maanagaram, and Kaithi starring Karthik Shivakumar, Kanagaraj has done a good job. He is an example of hard work and smart work," said Vijay.
