Vetrimaaran will do justice to ‘Shoes of the Dead’: Neelima Kota

Chennai, March 19 (IANS) Writer-painter Neelima Kota is confident that National Award winning filmmaker Vetrimaaran will do full justice to the film adaptation of her book “Shoes of the Dead”, which deals with farmer suicides.


“I never thought my book would ever be made into a film, even though I felt the issue of farmer suicides deserves to be told. And when finally Vetrimaaran decided to adapt it into a film, I was confident he will do full justice to it,” Kota told IANS.

She was stunned when she saw Vetrimaaran’s Tamil film “Visaaranai”, about police brutality and abuse of power.

“It was a stunning film. He has the knack of telling a powerful story out of an issue from the vantage point of all the characters involved. He has ability to dissolve into the story and that’s not an easy thing to do,” she said.

Through the film, Kota believes the voices of the hapless farmers and their families will be finally heard.

Asked if she would co-write the film with Vetrimaaran, she said that it’s too early to divulge any details regarding the project.

March 19 (IANS) Director Vikram Adittya, fresh out of the success of his Telugu directorial debut “Bhale Manchi Roju”, will team up next with actor Nani. However, everything with regard to this project is still at a nascent stage.

“Talks have been initiated with Nani. A project is on the cards, but it’s too early to comment on the film,” Adittya told IANS.

Currently busy with the script work, he says the project might take off this year end.

Nani, meanwhile, is busy with multiple projects, following the back-to-back success of “Bhale Bhale Magadivoy” and “Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha”.
