Maverick director Vetrimaaran’s Visaaranai has been selected as India’s official entry for the prestigious Oscar awards, which is to be held next year. Visaaranai is said to be selected mainly because of the universal theme as it dealt about human rights and corrupt system.
Visaaranai is all about how a group of innocent people from Tamil Nadu gets arrested for an uncommitted crime and how they are brutally tortured cops to accept the crime.
Visaaranai is jointly produced by Vetrimaaran’s Grassroot Film Corporations and Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films. “We’re on cloud9!!! #Visaaranai has been chosen to represent #India at the #Oscars. @dhanushkraja @VetriMaaran”, tweeted Grassroot Film Corporations.
