Ajith Kumars Thunivu co-star plays the lead in the rooted horror thriller Naayadi!

Australia-return Aadharsh Madhikaandham produces, directs and plays the protagonist in 'Naayaadi', a film that stars Ajith's 'Thunivu' co-star Kadhambari as the female lead. Aadharsh hails from Tamil Nadu and worked as a metro train pilot in Sydney. This movie is a gritty horror thriller that narrates the story of Kerala's most backward tribal group.

Produced, directed and headlined by Aadharsh Madhikaandham for Advik Visual Media, Warrier Films Corporation Australia, Futurz Australia and Aadharsh Madhikaandham Pictures, 'Naayadi' is slated to release on June 16. Kadhambari, who starred in 'Thunivu' with Ajith, plays the female lead in this suspense-filled horror-fantasy-thriller.

'Naayadi' narrates the story of Naayaadis, a most backward tribal community in Kerala. Popular YouTuber Fabby plays a key role. The film is about how the Naayaadis, who have been suffering for years, learned and used witchcraft voodoo and black magic to protect themselves from humans and animals in the past, and their connection today."

Now, the movie team has announced a unique prize competition to enthuse fans and provide opportunities to those who want to act and work in films. Aadharsh Madhikaandham, who explained about a prize competition that he has planned, said, "The contest titled 'Who is Naayaadi' will be conducted through social media. Participants can write a couple of lines about the Naayaadi tribes and give a brief review of the film. Gold coins will be given to 10 people and silver coins to 10 participants who gave excellent and honest comments. 100 people will be given special prizes and 10 people who are interested in acting or working in films will be given an opportunity in our next movie."

Aadharsh Madhikaandham said, "It has been my long-time dream to be part of the film industry. So, I have made 'Naayaadi' with the money I earned in Australia. It will be completely different from the routine horror films. Naayaadis (meaning hunters) are a very backward tribe living without even basic amenities. The film will talk about Naayaadis and their history. Speaking further, he said, "Famous writer Jeyamohan has mentioned in his book 'Nooru Simhasanangal' how much suffering a person from the Naayaadi race faced before completing his IAS. But their story has not been told on screen yet. The film 'Naayaadi' will fulfil this."

The film also stars Malavika Manoj, Arawinthsamy, Nivas S Saravanan and Ravichandran. R. Arun, who is composing music for the 'Parithabangal' team's upcoming film, will make his debut as a music director with 'Naayaadi'. Cinematography is by Mosses Daniel and editing is by CM Elangovan. Bruce Lee Rajesh choreographed the stunt scenes.
