Janaki amma as many call her is making a comeback, post her accident. She was hospitalized early February 2012 after suffering a head injury, slipping on the wet bathroom floor, during her stay at a Tirupathi hotel. Her new comeback project is titled Vellai Kaagidham.
The movie stars Deepthi Nambiar and debutant Sathish in lead roles. “The story is on the loss of family virtues and children wanting to get rid of their parents, sending them to old age-homes”, says director Chandar. Deepthi who entered the industry through Lingusamy’s Pattalam also had a small role to play in Engeyum Eppodhum. Says the actress, “I am so happy to get a role like this and hope to sign new Tamil films.” First time actor Sathish plays an orphan in the film. This family drama is jointly produced by Aathi lakshmi Films and Big Screen Cinemas banner by Dhinesh Srinivas, MN Raja and Satish Varshan. Director Chandar wanted a voice that would connect with the young and the old alike. Focusing on the family theme, he welcomed Janaki amma to make things special for his Vellai Kaagidham. We too are glad that our ‘Nightingale’ is back.
