Actress Nayantara, who awaits the release of Vikram's Iru Mugan, is busy shooting for her upcoming film, which will speak about the problems faced by the people of Tamil Nadu, due to water scarcity.
"We are making this film with lot of social responsibility. It will create an impact in the minds of the audience because it's about water scarcity and it happens to be one of the major problems faced by people nowadays," film's director Gopi Nainar said in a statement.
Not surprisingly, speculations are rife that the film might involve episodes from the infamous Kaveri water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
"When it comes to water, there are various dimensions to the problem. They can be social or political, and my film will deal with the political side of an issue that has national ramifications," Gopi told Times of India.
Speaking about how he managed to rope in the lady superstar, he has said: "I had approached Nayanthara by asking for a sit-down for a script narration. She liked the script and thanks to our producers, who are based in Mumbai, we immediately went on the floor."
Nayantara will be seen playing a district collector in the movie, which also stars Vignesh & Ramesh of Kaaka Muttai fame, Sunu Lakshmi and Ramachandran of Sathuranga Vettai fame. The first shooting schedule of the film has already been completed.
Meanwhile, director Gopi is also looking forward to his next project, which narrates the boxing history of Chennai. The film will feature real-life boxers.
"I had originally planned to direct that (boxing) film first, but since we decided to cast real-life boxers instead of actors to add authenticity, we needed a year's time to train them. The film will also talk about women boxers from this region," he told the leading daily.
