Director Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan have joined hands to bankroll Navarasa, an anthology consisting of nine short films. One of the nine films will introduce actor Arvind Swami as the director. His film Roudhram will feature Riythvika playing the lead role of Anbukarasi. As the title suggests, the film showcases the emotion of anger. Navarasa will stream on Netflix on August 6. The film will stream in nearly 190 countries. Directors Gautham Menon, Rathindran Prasad, Sarjun KM, Bejoy Nambiar, Priyadarshan, Karthick Naren, Karthik Subbaraj, and Vasanth will direct the nine films.
Apart from Riythvika, Roudhram also stars Sree Raam, Abhinayashree, Ramesh Thilak, and Geetha Kailasam in important roles. Speaking about working with Arvind Swami in his debut directorial venture, Riythvika said, "It was an honor to work with such a legendary actor like Arvind Swami while also witnessing his work as a director. He ensured that all technical aspects were in place to get a great scene and emotion filmed. His meticulous and detail-oriented filmmaking methods were impressive and extraordinary. It was an enthralling experience for me to attend the virtual workshops and online meetings for scenes and dialogues.”
