By Rinku Gupta
Director Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan ( Founder Qube ) have come together to make a Netflix original anthology called Navarasa, based on the nine emotions of Indian art forms.
9 Tamil cinema directors will be making 9 short films. They include Gautham Menon, Arvind Swami, Karthik Subbaraj, Ponram VVS, Halitha Shameem, KV Anand, Bejoy Nambuar, Ratindran and Karthick Naren. The line up is already creating waves on social media.
Another reason for the buzz is the fact that it includes actors Suriya, Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Revathy, Nithya Menen, Parvathy, Aishwarya Rajesh, Poorna, Rythvika, Prakash Raj, Siddharth, Gautham Karthik, Ashok Selvan and many others, who are all coming together for a cause in Navarasa.
The proceeds from the films will go towards the well-being of film workers in Tamil cinema impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
The actors and technical crew have offered to work pro- bono, showcasing their empathy and unity with the ailing film industry impacted by the covid lockdown.
