Singer-lyricist-actor Arunraja Kamaraj has taken up the directorial baton next. “I was driven to cinema by direction, which has always been my passion and aim. I wrote and directed many short films and participated in many short film competitions and also worked as an assistant director in ‘Vettai Mannan’ to polish my directorial skills. Now I feel confident enough to direct a movie. This is going to be a sports based film, focussing on women’s cricket,” said Arunraja in a statement.
“I wrote this script much before the recently concluded women’s cricket world cup in which our Indian team and its players won millions of hearts with their tremendous game and passion. This story is about following our passions, how crucial are the family’s support in a person’s dream and a beautiful portrayal of a father and a daughter, who wants to make it big in women’s cricket,” Arunraja added.
