Manikandan On Why ‘Kadaisi Vivasayi’ Was A Film He Had To Make

Manikandan, who is currently hard at work on his fourth project, Kadaisi Vivasayi, says the film will tackle the issue of agriculture and the many ways it is ignored by mainstream society.


Speaking to Silverscreen, Manikandan said, “Farmers are the backbone of our community, and yet we find it too easy to ignore their plight. They see only rejection from us, and yet they continue to feed us. I wanted to address all these issues in my next. I am working on the script right now, and hope to come out with it soon.”

The director doesn’t have any actors in mind for the project yet. “I can’t say anything till the script shapes up the way I want it to. So, I can’t really comment right now.”

Manikandan’s last film was the critically acclaimed Aandavan Kattalai. The film had Vijay Sethupathi and Ritika Singh in the lead roles, and was released in 2016.
