While Maari Selvaraj’s directorial debut ‘Pariyerum Perumal’ dealt with honour killings in southern Tamil Nadu, his sophomore film, which will have Dhanush in the lead, will throw light on another important issue.
Without revealing what the issue is going to be, the filmmaker said, “Dhanush gave me this opportunity after watching Pariyerum Perumal. The shoot will begin in December.”
Maari Selvaraj, who is happy about joining hands with a talented actor and National Award winner like Dhanush added: “All I can say is the film will address an important issue just like Pariyerum Perumal. It will be a people’s film.”
The movie is tentatively titled ‘Karnan’ and Malayalam actress Rajisha Vijayan is likely to be paired opposite Dhanush in the film. The flick will be bankrolled by Kalaipuli S Thanu’s V Creations, who has produced Dhanush’s upcoming release ‘Asuran’ directd by Vetrimaaran as well.
