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.
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.
