Jaya Prada returns to Tamil cinema with Keni

The film about a water dispute between the people of TN and Kerala will also feature Parthiepan in a pivotal role

Published: 12th July 2017

Actor-director R Parthiepan will be seen in an important role in the upcoming Tamil film, Keni, which will also mark Jaya Prada's comeback to Tamil cinema after a decade. The actress was seen last in Kamal Haasan's Dasavatharam.

Directed by Malayalam filmmaker MA Nishad, the story revolves around a water dispute that crops up between the people of Tamil Nadu and Kerala because of a well (Keni is the Tamil word for well). According to sources, the film is set in 1965 when Kerala was formed as a separate state.

Jaya Prada will be seen as the resident of the house with the well, while Parthiepan will play the person who helps resolve the water conflict. Keni also has Nasser and Thalaivasal Vijay playing important supporting roles.
