Ira teaser is a troll, says director
The film stars Unni Mukundan and Gokul Suresh
The teaser of the Unni Mukundan and Gokul Suresh-starrer Ira clearly reminded us about the media frenzy during the actor's assault case. However, director Saiju says he meant it as a troll and Ira has no resemblance to the incident whatsoever.
"The teaser is already getting a good response. In Ira, there is a sequence where the lead character, Dr Aryan, gets trapped in a case and I felt taking the recent incident as a reference would communicate the situation in an entertaining way," says the director.
While the film, which will hit the screens this week, has Unni and Gokul in the lead, the director refuses to say who the antagonist and protagonist are. "Ira is a thriller with an element of suspense. There are two lead characters. It starts off as a romantic film and then turns into an investigation thriller," says Saiju.
Produced by Vysakh Udaykrishna Films, Ira also has Miya and Niranjana Anoop in significant roles.
