Vinayan’s Nangeli is all set to go on floors next year
Earlier this year, veteran filmmaker Vinayan has announced that he will be directing a movie titled as Irulinte Naalukal, based on the life of the revolutionary woman Nangeli. Recently, the director confirmed that the pre-production works for the movie is in progress and the script for it is already completed. The movie, now titled as Nangeli, which will be made on a big canvas will go on floors by next year.
Nangeli, believed to be an Ezhava woman, lived in 19th century in Cherthala, is one of the first revolutionary women in the country. She hesitated to pay breast tax, a tax imposed on the outcaste women in Travancore, and cut her breast off in an effort to protest this. The star cast and other details regarding the project are expected to be revealed soon.
