N.Krishna shot to fame with his 1st Tamil film as director, Sillunu Oru Kaadhal (2006).Though the film didn’t become a commercial success, it did make headlines because it featured Suriya and Jyothika in the lead and it released during the week that they got married. The film was also noted for its slightly controversial theme and the music by A.R.Rahman. Though N.Krishna had started work finally on his second film Nedunchalai (Highway) in mid 2012, the film has been in the making for quite some time. With Udhayanidhi Stalin‘s Red Giant Movies finally picking up the distribution rights in late 2013, the film has finally been completed and will now be releasing on 28th March.
Featuring Aari and Shivada Nair in the lead, the supporting cast includes Prashant Narayanan, VTV Ganesh, Thambi Ramaiah, Salim Kumar etc. Nedunchalai is produced by Aaju and C.Soundararajan while C.Sathya has composed the music.
