Manon, a former assistant director under Vetrimaaran who has assisted the award-winning director in all the films he had made till date, is debuting as director with an upcoming film titled as Ka Ka Ka.
The film has Ashok, Sruthi Ramakrishnan and Maheswari in lead roles. Ashok, who debuted in Kollywood with Kozhi Koovudhu a few years back, hasn’t been able to cement his place in Kollywood though he has starred in more than half-a-dozen films. He counts a lot on Ka Ka Ka and says that the moment he heard the script, his instinct backed him to take up the film.
Queried about the script of the film, Manon said “It’s a horror thriller with a very different script. A crow and an almost lifeless tree play major roles in the film. Initially, we thought of using computer-generated graphics to create the crow and the tree.
Accidentally, we stumbled upon such a tree at a remote place. We uprooted it, brought it using a crane to the shooting spot, planted it and shot the sequences around the tree.
“The film would be as interesting as the prelude to making the film. It would appeal to all sections of the audiences,” he says. The one-liner of the film is that we should remain cautious against those who try to be too nice to us, he adds.
