Sharing the photo, Alphonse captioned the post, "Met the Mount Everest of Cinema Ulaganayagan @ikamalhaasan for the first time in my life. Fell on his feet and took his blessings. Heard nearly 5 to 6 small plots of cinema from his mouth…I took small notes in a span of 10 minutes with a pen in my writing book."

He also wrote, "For him as a Master it was his experiences he shared… but as a student I was scared whether I would miss out any of the content he told. Thank you Universe for this and thank you Mr.Mahendiran & Mr Disney from @RKFI for this Unbelievable & Surreal and Beautiful experience (heart face and red heart emojis)."

Reacting to the post, a fan wrote, "Very good to see both legends." "Watching my two favourites in a single frame," read a tweet. "Many congratulations. You are so lucky," said another person. "Both please collab and do a soulful movie," tweeted another fan. "Bro take care of your health and give us good movies like Premam..Your short films were also too good," read a comment.

In 2021, Alphonse on Facebook had announced his project with Fahadh Faasil. However, for reasons unknown, the project never hit the floors. The Malayalam film was titled Paattu.
