Arundathi dons khakiPublished: October 7, 2015
Arundathi of ‘Naaigal Jaakirathai’ and ‘Thottal Thodarum’ fame is playing a police officer for the first time, for an upcoming movie titled ‘Arthanaari’.
“Arundathi has undergone a lot of workshops and she has also been trained with few of my friends who are police officers, she underwent these training because as a cop your body language is more important and Arundathi had those qualities in her. All she was needed just few inputs to shape up .She fitted in the character perfectly,” says debutant director Sundarra Elangovan.
On the film, he says, “Arthanaari the title which speaks on equal powers to both the genders is exactly on about what the film is.”
“It is a script which revolves around a lady cop who plays undercover for an assignment and the challenges she face as a woman in her duty and how she over comes it. Police force which is still considered only as a bastion for men, in spite of many women cops who had marked themselves a space in the history of the profession and position they hold.”
The director is from the school of Bala and the film is on the verge of completion with couple of songs left to be shot.
