Director AL Vijay, who is currently working on his upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual Karu, reveals that the film will essentially be about a mother’s bond with her four-year-old daughter, and will also touch upon the issue of abortion. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, the director said that Sai Pallavi is perfect for the role.
“Right from the beginning, I was very confident that Sai would be able to pull it off. I watched Premam as well as Kali. I loved her performance in both. She was very impressive in the latter. She has done a wonderful job in Karu,” he told DC. The actress has also dubbed for herself in the film.
The film also marks her debut in Tamil films. Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai and Vikram’s Sketch – two films that were supposed to launch her in Tamil – did not work out as planned.
Naga Shourya plays the male lead in Karu. Nirav Shah handles the cinematography while Raju Mahalingam of Lyca Productions finances the project.
