According to Yuvaraj, after the release of that film, he faced a lot of humiliation.

A story written by Yuvaraj himself, ‘Potta Potti’ opened up to positive reviews from critics. After that film, there was a gap of one and a half years as the debutante director did not know what to do next.

The next film from Yuvaraj was ‘Tenaliraman’, a historical comedy movie with Vadivelu and Meenakshi Dixit in the lead roles. Released in 2014, the film turned out to be a hit and collected 22.9 million at the box office worldwide.

In 2015, Yuvaraj wrote and directed ‘Eli’, his next movie with actor Vadivelu. However, the film bombed at the box office and received negative reviews from critics.

After a long 8-year break, Yuvaraj is coming up with his next film ‘Irugapatru’ in 2023. A romantic drama, the director has cast Vikram Prabhu, and Shraddha Srinath in the movie. The teaser of ‘Irugapatru’ is already out and the film is all set to release in theatres on 6th October.
