When acclaimed writer Raju Murugan wanted to direct his maiden venture Cuckoo, his first choice was Sivakarthikeyan to play the lead role. The director had in fact approached him and had narrated the story. Though impressed with what he heard, Sivakarthikeyan rejected the offer as he did not want to play a visually impaired person at this stage of his career.

At the audio and teaser launch yesterday, the audiences got a taste of what Raju Murugan has made on the screens and it looks like Sivakarthikeyan has missed an opportunity to  move on to the next phase in his career.
