If things go as per the reports of Moviecrow.com, then we might see real women cricketers acting in the film. The reports also suggest that the film will be similar to Bollywood flick Dangal.
According to the IANS reports, Arunraja said, “I was driven to cinema by direction, which has been a long-time dream. In fact, I entered the industry with the hope of becoming a director but I had to write to support myself. I wrote and directed a few short films and even worked as an assistant director in ‘ettai Mannan’.”
He further added, “This is going to be a film on sports, focusing on women’s cricket. I wrote the script much before the just concluded ICC Women’s World Cup in which the Indian team won millions of hearts with their tremendous game and passion.”
