Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, wife of producer-turned-actor Udhayanidhi is debuting as a filmmaker with Vanakkam Chennai.
Kiruthiga says, ‘I have been writing from my college days, and at one point, when I got a proper script, I thought it was time that I should make a film. That’s how the idea to do a movie was born.’
‘I did a few short films earlier. I also attended Kamal Haasan’s screenwriting workshop to equip myself,’ she says.
Talking about her film, she says, ‘Shiva and Priya Anand play the lead pair. The film is about two individuals – the hero who comes to the city from a village, and the heroine who returns from London, and what happens when they meet. It is a romantic comedy. Santhanam plays a key character.’
