Ameer was instrumental in Yuvan’s change? ! Director Ameer has said that he knew Yuvan Shankar Raja right from the Nandha days when he was youngster trying to make it big in the film industry. The young Yuvan was reckless and was more into partying and making money rather than anything else. At one point of time, Ameer and other directors advised Yuvan to mend his ways as it could take a toll on his personal and professional life.

Ameer recalled that some months later Yuvan came to completely transformed and told him that he is following Islam which was a huge surprise. On whether he had gifted Yuvan with the holy Quran, Ameer refused to answer.
