Confident of winning national award for 'Maaveran Kittu': Suseenthiran

IANS  |  Chennai 

Director Suseenthiran, whose latest Tamil action-thriller "Maaveran Kittu" is slated for release on Friday, is confident that his film which deals with a social issue will earn him a national award.

"The story is partly based on a real-life incident and to make it commercially viable, I have added some elements. The incident happened in my village many years ago. I have addressed a social issue with a lot of sensitivity and I'm confident my work will get me a national award," Suseenthiran told IANS.

The film stars Vishnu Vishal, Sri Divya and Parthepan in the lead.

Asked why the film deserves the coveted award, he said: "The story deserves it more than anything. It's an emotional thriller with a social message."

He also clarified that the film is not about the life of late LTTE leader Kittu.

"The story has no Eelam (LTTE in Tamil) connect whatsoever. It's a film about an important social issue and I like making people-centric films," he said, adding he has already started working on his next project.

It's a bilingual featuring Sundeep Kishan, Vikranth and Mehreen.
