Chennai: Discovery Tamil and B Studios and Company Productions have entered into a brand association for ace director Bala’s film ‘Thaarai Thappattai’.

The movie starring Sasikumar and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar is slated for release on Pongal day, January 14. The film marks an important milestone in composer Ilayaraja’s career, it being his 1000th film.

Bala has made the film on the lives of Karakattam musicians and dancers in Thanjavur. The story revolves around Discovery Tamil’s cameras searching for ancient Tamil dance forms that face oblivion. The crew is on the look-out for Swamy Pulavar, a renowned singer and a Kalaimamani awardee.

Rahul Johri, EVP and GM — South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia—Pacific said, “Discovery is credited with bringing programmes that explore India’s vibrant traditions and rich culture. Rediscovering the ancient dance forms of Tamil Nadu, the film’s narrative is also on similar lines and makes this integration a natural fit.”

Bala said, “We are very happy to associate with Discovery Tamil, one of the most popular channels in the region. I believe it is an ideal platform to spread the information about the life of Karagatam musicians, dancers in Thanjavur and ancient Tamil dance form that are fading out in today’s modern world.”
