Arunraja Kamaraj, who played comic roles in films like Raja Rani and Maan Karate, and grabbed everyone’s attention with the Neruppuda and Theri numbers from Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali and Vijay’s Theri respectively, is turning a director now.
Arun has revealed that it’s been his long-time desire to become a filmmaker and he only took to writing songs to support himself financially. He is all set to turn director with a film on women’s cricket.
“I have taken inspiration from several real-life incidents to pen this script. Irrespective of the sport, or the gender, family’s support is important for a sports person to succeed,” he said.
“There are several films that deal with other kind of sports, but mine will probably be the first one to talk about women’s cricket. I can say it will be one-of-a-kind,” he added.
To finalize the casting, the Neruppuda singer is planning to audition actresses who can also play cricket.
Meanwhile, buzz is that Sivakarthikeyan, who is a very good friend of Arunraja, might play a cameo in this film. More details are awaited.
