In general, forests are believed to be a treasure trove and there’s an aura of mystery surrounding them. Kaattu pudhayal is a concept we are all aware of. The story will explore all these facets. he story will also talk about the importance of forests in an engaging way.We went on floors about three-four months ago, and have shot in Nagercoil, Tenkasi and Kalakkadu as well. There’s a lot of CG work because we’ll be showing animals."
