Yasakhan is based on real incidents that happened over a decade in Madurai.
"It is a romantic story based on several incidents that happened over a decade in Madurai. I am hoping that the audience will appreciate the film because of some realistic sequences that have been included in the narrative," director Thuraivanan told IANS.
"The story is the strength of the film and I am positive that the output will be admirable," he added.
Mahesh Kumar of Angadi Theru fame is playing the lead opposite Niranjana in the film, produced by KK Santhosha Pandian. National award-winner Raja Mohammad has been roped in as the editor, while debutant Babu will handle the camera.
Sathish Chakravarthy will compose the music for the film, which is likely to come out later this year.
