After Dikkilona, Vinodhaya Sitham, and Mathil, Zee5 is back with another original film titled Blood Money. The suspense drama is directed by Sarjun KM. The film features Priya Bhavani Shankar in the lead role while Kishore and Metro Shirish will play important roles in the film. The suspense drama is produced by Irfan Malik under their banner, Emperor Entertainment. Speaking about Priya Bhavani Shankar's role, she said, "I play a journalist in this film, a very empathetic one. It is like life has come a circle for someone who started as a journalist. Very happy to be part of this suspense-filled drama."
Actor Kishore said, "Migration for livelihood is not a new phenomenon. With increasing population and urbanization it has become the norm. Blood money is a sensitive portrayal of the plight of people who travel abroad in search of livelihood. It also emphasizes the role of media in bringing about a change of mindset in today’s society. By the end of it all, it will make anyone think twice before leaving everything behind and traveling abroad to an unknown land in search of a richer life. It gives us hope in showing how constructive media can be. It’s a pleasure associating again with Sarjun known for his portrayal of sensitive subjects through his short and feature films."
