Shakthi Chidambaram has changed the title of his forthcoming
film Porukki as Mahamagam. Earlier the director temporarily changed
the title as Athiruthilla. But the hero and the director weren't
convinced with this title.
Mahamagam stars with Sundar C and debutant Ragini in the lead
roles. Yesteryear heroine Nadhiya is playing in her first prominent
role after Thamirabarani. The director said in a press release that
the movie is set in Kumbakonam, a place familiar with the grand
festival of Mahamagam which takes place there once in a decade.
Hence the director has chosen the title.
The movie was originally titled as Porukki, but following the
strict order from the Govt of Tamil Nadu that films titles which go
against the Tamil culture will not be entitled for tax exemption,
the director changed the title.
