A source privy to the developments told Silverscreen that the film is based on the journey of a poor young girl named Thamarai who achieves her dream of becoming a dancer through sheer determination. While Gayathri plays the older girl, the name of the actor playing the younger version has been kept under wraps.
Along with Gayathri, actors Sindhu Krishnan, Agni Natchathiram serial fame Vasanth Vasi, Latha Balakrishnan, and Nivas Adithan will be featuring in prominent roles. Ashwin Vinayagamoorthy has composed music with Kala master choreographing dance. The rest of the crew is yet to be revealed.
Dhanush has reportedly rendered a song for the film titled ‘Pudavai Nilave’.
