Well, Thiruna, under the direction of debutante Ravi, is being produced under the Universal Movie Makers banner. Ravi has worked under several noted directors in Kollywood; he has become a full-fledged independant director with Thiruna which stars debutant Subash, a student of Hotel Management. According to the script, the hero and his uncle (played by Bose Venkat), are naive village folk who are crazy about actress Nayantara. They have decided to start a fan club for her in their village.
In keeping with this script, the Thiruna team put up several huge cutouts of the actress in Anumanthai, the village where the shooting is taking place. People of the village however got the impression that Nayantara was visiting Anumanthai to actually inaugurate her fan club and they arrived in droves at the shooting spot. It took almost three hours to contain the crowd and explain to them that she was not coming, that this was just a scene for the movie! Their disappointment cannot be expressed in mere words (sob, sob).
