Director Julien Prakash is now busy directing a Tamil film, titled Ilami, that will focus on the sport of Jallikattu.
Sources say that the film, the story of which is set almost 400 years ago, will try to show how Jallikattu was originally played. According to the unit members, the sport, 400 years ago, was called Vadam Jallikattu.
Vadam Jallikattu, they claim, was different from the present day Jallikattu as in Vadam Jallikattu, a man was expected to encounter a bull face to face and then tame it as against today’s jallikattu in which competitors try to tame a bull that is on the charge.
The film will feature Yuvan of Saatai fame and Anu Krishna as the lead. It will also feature Ravi Maria among others.
