Daniel Kish, the echo-location expert, who features in Thaandavam says that he is excited and nervous at the same time as the release date of the film nears. During the press meet held recently in Chennai, he said that though he had featured in a number of documentaries before, Thaandavam is his first feature film.
One of the roles played by Vikram in this film is that of a blind man and director AL Vijay had drawn inspiration for this particular role from Daniel Kish. Vikram came to know about echo-location and how it helps the visually challenged to carry on a normal life just like the others.
Speaking at this event, Daniel Kish said that he runs a network known as the World Access for the Blind which conduct workshops throughout the globe to help the visually impaired benefit from echo-location.
