Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi had previously turned his masterpiece ‘Mother’ – Tamil version ‘Thai Kaaviyam’ as a movie. The film started rolling before couple of years with lyric writer Pa. Vijay making his debut as an actor. Off the late, the film’s shooting was shelved due to filmmaker’s inappropriate making style.
Now, the film has got a new lease of life with a different title ‘Ilaignyan’ and Suresh Krishna has been offered to wield the megaphone. It’s worth mentioning that this will be the 50th directorial of Suresh Krishna with the same actor in lead role.
Malayalam actress Ramya Nambeesan stars opposite him in female lead while Kushboo takes on the role of Pa. Vijay’s mother. Vidhyasagar scores music and is produced by Martin.
The film’s Pooja was held this morning at Binny Mills with CM Karunanidhi himself taking part.
