Director Bala’s next film Tharai Thappattai, with Sasikumar and Varalakshmi Sarathukumar in the lead, will start rolling from July 14th in Chennai. A major portion of the film is expected to be shot at Tanjore, as the movie revolves around Karagattam.

Interestingly, Supersinger fame Pragathi plays Sasikumar’s sister in the film. Chezhiyan, who worked with Bala in Paradesi, will handle the camera for this film too, while Maestro Ilayaraja will be scoring music for the film. Editing will be taken care by Kishore Te and Poornima is in charge of the costumes.
