Kootthan speaks about the plight of junior artistes and group danc-

ers.

It features Rajkumar and Srijitha in the lead roles, as well

as a Mumbai-based actress named Sona.

Directed by Venky, the movie has Bhagyaraj, Urvashi, Nagendra Prasad, Manobala, and Ramki in supporting cast.

Talking about the film, Venky says, "So far no one has attempted to talk

about the predicament of junior artistes and background dancers in the

film industry. I spoke with many of them before starting work on the

movie, because I wanted to project a realistic picture. It’s not preachy."

Actress Remya Nambeesan, producer Aishwarya, who’s also actor-

director Jothikrishna’s wife, and actor T Rajendar have sung songs

composed by music director Balaji for the film.
