Lightning strikes the sets of Margazhi Thingal
The film marks the directorial debut of Manoj Bharathiraja
Previously, we reported that the shoot for Margazhi Thingal went on floors on last Wednesday. On Tuesday, when the team were shooting in a village near Palani, the cast and crew were struck by lightning. Director Suseenthiran, the producer of the film, revealed that the lightmen, fortunately, escaped the strike, but that some of the equipment was destroyed.
Marking the directorial debut of Manoj Bharathiraja, Margazhi Thingal stars his father, Bharathiraja, in the lead role along with debut actors Rakshana and Shyam Selvan in prominent roles.
Suseenthiran is backing the film under the Vennila Productions banner. The music for the film will be composed by GV Prakash. Margazhi Thingal will have cinematography by AR Suriya and editing by Thiyagu.
It is to be noted that Manoj made his acting debut with Taj Mahal, which was helmed by Bharathiraja.
