The Isaignani is always there to encourage good things. He is at it again, as Ilayaraja has worked without taking any remuneration for ‘Pachai Kudai’, a film by director R Selvaraj, which talks about the importance of green cover to protect the world from global warming. Selvaraj is a longtime colleague of Bharathiraja and Mani Ratnam and he is the brain behind some of the blockbuster films of Kollywood. Now he has come out with ‘Pachai Kudai’, a period film which is about a pair who lived 2,000 years ago.
Nithya Das plays the heroine, the role of a tribal women. “She comes across a guy who is in the forest to cut trees. Both fall for each other and Nithya Das makes him understand the need for green cover. Selvaraj has sandwiched a good message in a love story,” say sources.
The director is planning to screen the film to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and President of India Pratibha Patil. “After that, the film will be aired through television channels in 120 countries in the world and will be screened at all major international film festivals.”
