Aari’s next film, Mounavalai, directed by Robert Raaj of Kalam fame, was launched in Chennai today. It was not the usual pooja ceremony, the launch had a lecture by environmentalist Sultan Ahmed Ismail to dissuade the film crew from using plastic tea cups and thermocol plates.
Aari told Silverscreen, “In all the shooting spots, production houses serve tea in plastic cups and some of the companies serve food on thermocol plates. It is injurious to health and Sultan explained it with a demonstration today. We are also planning to approach the producers’ council and request them to issue a ban on plastic tea cups at the shooting spots. I thought that the film’s launch should also serve a purpose and hence this eco-friendly meet. This awareness can reach to the general public as well. ”
He also added, “ The Mounavalai team will not serve food on plastic plates and cups. We have already stopped using it.”
Aari revealed that he will play an NRI in this suspense thriller, which is about how a comman man is silent about various issues surrounding him. The shoot will commence end of this month.
