Jeeva to star in film on devalued
By Chitra Prakash, Indo-Asian News Service
Chennai, Aug 29 (IANS) The film may not have a pure-Tamil title.
But it will certainly have a Tamil-promoting theme.
Titled "Thamizh M.A." ("M.A. in Tamil"), the film will show the
misery that a master's degree in Tamil brings to a young man who
makes an unpromising academic choice.
Jeeva, whose real name is Amar Choudhary, is the son of
well-known producer R.B. Choudhary and will play the lead role
in the film to be directed by Ramasubbu.
The director says he is going to tour the state and look for
college students who can play some other role in the film, which
will portray the "humiliation" the protagonist suffers for
choosing Tamil as his subject.
Yuvan Shankar Raja will score the music and N. Muthukumar will
pen down lyrics.
Shooting is scheduled to start on Sep 9 and the makers plan to
complete the film in 100 days.
