Also, the love story is being made with a TV reality show as its
backdrop. "Besides the lead cast, which is also played by
newcomers, I've roped in 32 debutants in important roles for the
film. All of them will undergo an acting workshop before they join
the team for shooting," Nanda told IANS.
"The film focuses on the impact of television medium on our
lives. These 32 members are part of a television reality show being
exclusively made for the film, in which they will get to essay
different roles," he added.
The film, which stars debutants Joe and Aarusi, also features A
Venkatesh and Ravi Maria in important roles.
Queried if the film is about TV reality shows, Nanda said, "No,
it's not about reality shows. It's a love story between two
contestants of a TV show. Apart from the love angle, we are trying
to throw some light on the television medium."
"We've had different types of love stories - some start in
college or school or through common friends. So we wanted to break
all the clichés by painting love against a different backdrop and,
therefore, chose TV as the backdrop," he added.
The film, which went on floors recently, has been so far shot in
places like Chennai, Kaaraikudi and Ramanathapuram. Another 40-50
days of shooting is left. Kannan has composed the music for
