Nearly after a decade, Nandita Das will be seen in a Tamil film. The talented actress has been roped in by National Award winning filmmaker Seenu Ramasamy to play a crucial role in his next – ‘Neer Paravai’.
The film, which is set in the backdrop of fishermen in southern Tamil Nadu, has Vishnu of ‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu’ fame and Sunaina in lead roles. The latest addition to the cast is Nandita Das.
Confirming the development, the director says, "Nandita is doing a very important role. Like how Saranya’s character in my earlier venture Thenmerku Paruvakatru was talked about, the role which Nandita is doing will garner a lot of attention."
Seenu Ramasamy met Nandita in Bengaluru recently and narrated the story. "Known for hand picking her roles, Nandita said yes to Neer Paravai without taking much time," says the filmmaker.
