Chennai: Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap has praised director Pa Ranjith’s upcoming Tamil film ‘Nachathiram Nagargirdhu’. He praised that it is a film about love and it needs to be above all prejudices and hatred.
Kashyap wrote on Instagram, ‘Look at Nachtiram Nagargirdhu last night. The uncensored version is the film on Pa Ranjith’s mind. There is an order in his chaotic mind. Where so many of their identities are interacting and clashing with each other.
He said, ‘It is a film about love and the need to survive above all prejudices and hatred. The film imbibes the spirit of Pa Ranjith. This is his best work and my favorite film of Pa Ranjith.
This is not the first time that a Bollywood director has been inspired by a Tamil film. Anurag Kashyap has always believed that his famous Gangs of Wasseypur was inspired by director Sasikumar’s Tamil film Subramanyapuram.
Talking about ‘Nachtiram Nagargirdhu’, Pa Ranjith had earlier said that the film is not a romantic film but about love. He said, ‘Here (in this society), love has a value. Love is linked to caste and community.
When love is personal there is no problem. Now they have converted love into a political word. This film will discuss that issue. The director further revealed that his film will discuss love between homosexuals as well as transgenders.
The film stars Kalidas Jayaram, Kalaiyarasan and Dussehra Vijayan in the lead roles, the film has music by Tenma, edited by Selva.
