After making commercial entertainer Nimirnthu Nil with Jayam Ravi, Samuthirakani is ready to move on for his next. The director, this time, has chosen a woman-centric subject and roped in Amala Paul to star in the forthcoming Tamil flick Kitna.
Samuthirakani has said that Amala Paul will be seen in dual roles in Kitna. The character span of the actress will be from her birth to the age of 45. It is a strong female subject that has a high scope for the actress to showcase her acting abilities.
"My next project Kitna will be set against the backdrop of a forest. Amala Paul will essay a dual role, which will span from her birth to the age of 45. It will be a strong women-centric film with a lot of scope for Amala to perform," Samuthirakani told IANS.
The director says that it will be a low-budget film and he has plans to finish it quickly. "It will be a small film and I plan to wrap it as quickly as possible," he added.
On asking about his recent release Nimirnthu Nil, Samuthirakani claimed, "I have come a long way since the release of the film. When it was stalled hours before its initial release, there were rumours that I had committed suicide. There was a lot of pressure, but I'm glad our film has emerged victorious."
"The best part of Nimirnthu Nil is that its success belongs to each one of us who worked on the film. It was a combined effort which paid off despite all the roadblocks," he added.
