Guess what was the title director Bala initially zeroed in on for his upcoming film 'Paradesi'? It's 'Sani Bhagavan'. However, he later changed it as 'Paradesi'.
"Paradesi is a period flick which will speak about the lives of tea estate workers who were treated as slaves more than a century ago," says the National Award winner.
He adds: "Atharva has come out with a tremendous performance. In this third film of him itself, he has attained the maturity of 100th movie."
Bala says the female characters (played by Vedhika and Dhanshika) in 'Paradesi' will be symbols of affection and love. "I learnt these things from my daughter," he adds.
