She is currently finalising the rest of the cast and crew of the film.
KIRUTHIGA ANNOUNCES HER NEXT FILM
Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi made her debut as a filmmaker with Shiva and Priya Anand’s Vanakkam Chennai. Her second film Kaali received a lukewarm response at the box office. Now, the filmmaker is all set to direct her third film this year.
On Twitter Spaces, Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi had a soft launch for her film, which features Kalidas and Tanya in lead roles. Spaces is a new audio-only feature on Twitter where discussions on various topics take place. One can be a listener or speaker on a Space session on the micro-blogging site.
Speaking about the film, Kiruthiga said, “This is my third directorial venture after Vanakkam Chennai and Kaali. I took some time for this film as I wanted a good story. It has come out well now. The film speaks about the journey of life. Travel forms an integral part of the story.”
On choosing youngsters for the film, she said, “I was keen to cast youngsters in lead characters. Kalidas Jayaram and Tanya Ravichandran will fit the role well. Richard M Nathan, who is known for his quality works, cranks the camera. Pentela Sagar is producing the film on behalf of Rise East Entertainment. The rest of the cast and crew will be announced soon.”
Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi was applauded for her first film Vanakkam Chennai. While Kaali had an interesting premise, not many liked the execution.
