Bheeman Reghu turns director with Chaana
Chaana will follow a Tamil man from Tenkasi who migrates to Kerala for his livelihood
Veteran actor Bheeman Reghu is turning director with Chaana, which is said to have a unique theme. The story revolves around a Tamil man from Tenkasi who comes to Kerala to make a living with his knife-sharpening tool 'chaana'. It is said to be an emotion-driven story.
According to Reghu, the film sharply criticizes our social framework through the helplessness of a man. "I turned a director with Chaana by accident. I have had numerous experiences over my forty-five-year film career. One of these is my encounter with a Tamil Nadu native who works with a chaana. The film is based on his experiences. It has two Tamil songs, one of which has my voice. I don't believe anyone has tried a theme like this in Malayalam cinema before. Chaana would appeal to all kinds of audiences," he said.
Chaana was shot in three schedules in Tenkasi, Kanyakumari, Alappuzha and Kayamkulam.
