"We Have Struggled With No Food For Days," Kaaka Muttai Boys' Emotional Confession About Financial Struggles

Kaaka Muttai

Tamil movie Kaaka Muttai took Kollywood to a different level when it was released in 2014. With a critically acclaimed direction and a story that was distinct and relatable, director Manikandan made the headlines when the film was released, and Kaaka Muttai is still an unbeatable classic and it paved a new way for Tamil movies.

Speaking of Kaaka Muttai, one can never miss talking about the actors who played important roles in the movie. While Aishwarya Rajesh played an important role in it and made her debut in cinema with the film, child actors Vignesh and Ramesh made a huge sensation and grabbed the attention of critics and movie buffs by playing the central characters in the film.

In case you didn't know, the film revolved around two young boys from a slum in Chennai, and their aspiration to eat pizza from a popular outlet. How they become victims of elitism and whether they manage to finally eat pizza makes up for the rest of the movie.

Speaking in a recent interview, Vignesh and Ramesh opened up about the struggles they face in finding an opportunity to give a come-back to movies. In an interview with Galatta's YouTube channel, Ramesh said, "We are from Kasimedu. People hesitate to give us opportunities just because we are from the locality. It is a bad case of stereotyping and we are trying hard to break it. We both are struggling for opportunities and we would gladly take up any opportunity in the entertainment industry."

Vignesh said, "Without proper financial background, we are even unable to commute to offices for audition. There have been days when we struggled even without food. We are trying out best to find opportunities. Not just movies, we are open to acting in TV serials, too."
