Earlier, at the trailer launch event, R Madhavan shared his wife's reaction after she watched the trailer and teaser of Shaitaan. “I cannot tell you what an amazing experience it has been, especially with a team like this. I never imagined I could push myself to this level that people would get scared. I remember when I showed this trailer and teaser to my wife, she started to see me in a different light. Even today she tells me to talk to her from a distance. So I might face some trouble after this film,” said Madhavan.
