We've created history: Ashok Selvan
The actor's film Sila Samayangalil is the first Netflix exclusive release in India
Priyadarshan's Sila Samayangalil, which made it to the final round of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, is getting a Netflix release. The film will be available on the digital platform from today.
One of the lead actors, Ashok Selvan, says, "I don't see it as a disadvantage, though I admit it would have been nicer to see it on the big screen. Also, we had screened it in many International film festivals, including the prestigious Real D Screening Room in Los Angeles. Times are changing, and our film becomes the first Netflix original film of South India. I am happy we've created history."
He says the film will be remembered by the audiences for a long time as it deals with an issue like AIDS, which requires a lot of sensitivity.
The 92-minute film focuses on eight characters belonging to different walks of life.
Up next, Ashok has Oxygen in the pipeline, which he's currently shooting for, besides an untitled film with Samuthirakani. "He's not directing it though," he adds.
