After Ottran, Kaadhalna Summa Illai and Om , which is in the making, Adithalam is PLR. Ilankannan’s fourth directorial venture. He’s also the producer. “ Adithalam , as the name suggests, is about the lower strata of society — migrant labour that drives the construction industry and the faceless workforce that keeps the city clean. Adithalam is about their dreams, relationships and struggle for survival. Despite their hardships, there is room for human values, respect and camaraderie and that’s what I intend showcasing in Adithalam ,” says Ilankannan who is just back from a 25-day schedule of shooting with the film’s lead pair, Mahesh ( Angaditheru ) and Arushi ( Azhagan Azhagi ).
