The upcoming Tamil film Ilaignan is based on the novel written by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi. The film is directed by Suresh Krishna and produced by S.Martin.
Namitha was personally recommended to play a role of antagonist, by the Chief Minister.
When asked to her about this she said that, “It’s a honour to work in this film as the Chief Minister himself have chosen me for playing this role. I assure that my performance in this film will fulfill his expectations.”
My character in this film will remind you that of Ramya Krishnan role in Padayappa. Suresh Krishna had sculpted my role in an excellent way and there is lots of acting scope for me in this film. The Director told me that Kalaignar who had written the story, screenplay and dialogues have appreciated my acting”, she added with delight.
