The next year is shaping up to be very interesting for actor Jai with his films covering a span of genres. The actor joined fellow cast and crew members for the pooja ceremony of his newest movie Yenni Thuniga in the city yesterday.
Produced by Suresh Subramaniam for Rain of Arrow Entertainment, the film is the directorial debut of SK Vettri Selvan, a former associate of director Vasanth and cinematographer Ravi K Chandran. The new director has shot several commercials as well.
At the pooja ceremony, the new director interacted with the media. Vettri Selvan said, “The film’s title Yenni Thuniga is inspired from the Thirukkural. It signifies that one can be pushed to action after careful consideration. but once you take action there must be no looking back.”
He added, “Jai plays Kathir, a young IT professional who lives in the moment, and is carefree. His romantic lead, Narmada is played by Athulya Ravi who is very different from him. They fall in love, but, the main conflict in the movie and the source of all the thrills is not the love story, but, other people who are trying to bring Kathir down.”
The director was also all praise for other members of the cast, one of whom is yet to be finalised. “We are now approaching one of the leading artistes to play another negative character in the film and will making official announcement on this soon,” he said.
Anjali Nair will be playing another female lead in this film. The technical aspects are being handled by Sam CS (Music), JB Dinesh Kumar (Cinematography), VJ Sabu Joseph (Editor), GN Murugan (Stunt), Sherif (Choreography), NJ Sathya (Costume designer), ‘96’ fame Karthik Netha (Lyrics).
