Sarath Kumar to foray into web space
The shooting of the series began on Monday
Actor Sarath Kumar will be making his digital debut with a web series titled Irai. Directed by Rajesh M Selva, known for helming Kamal Haasan's Thoonga Vanam and Vikram-starrer Kadaram Kondan, the filming of the series has begun on Monday with safety and hygiene protocols. Billed as a crime thriller, the show will be produced by Raadhika Sarathkumar through Radaan Mediaworks.
"Despite crime thriller being its core genre, the show will encapsulate the essence of family, sentiments, and relationships. I am extremely happy that Shri Sarath Kumar is venturing into the world of OTT through our production house," said Raadhika in a statement.
Talking about shooting during the Covid-19 pandemic, Raadhika added, "I have always believed that the film industry is my extended family. To witness the scenario of technicians and artists coming together on the shooting spot during this post-pandemic phase has infused me with high spirits and gleefulness."
The makers are yet to announce the streaming platform Irai will be premiering on. The series will have music by Ghibran, while Yuvraj will be cranking the camera.
