 Vijayakanth's son speaks about Jallikattu

'Madura Veeran speaks about jallikattu from the start to finish. It glorifies the tradition sport of Tamils. I was all thrilled and happy to be part of the movie', says actor Shanmugapandian, son of DMDK president Vijayakanth.

Madura Veeran, directed and produced by PG Muthiah features newcomer Meenakshi as heroine. Samuthirakani, Vela Ramamurthy and P L Thenappan are also part of the cast. Plans are on for a release 2 February.

Shanmugapandian, says, 'Following Maruina protests, the younger generation came to know a lot about jallikattu. Madura Veeran aims to enlighten them more about the sport, which is a symbol of Tamil's valour. All credit to P G Muthiah for coming up with a strong story'.Though I was brought up in city, I used to visit our native in Madurai regularly since childhood with my parents. I have a special attachment to the place.

Hence playing a village boy was never difficult for me, says Shanmugapandian.The movie speaks from a local perspective. What challenges jallikattu faced is analysed in an interesting manner.

It is a fictional story with twists and turns, he says and adds, 'I thank Samuthirakani for encouraging and motivating us to give our best. He helped me a lot during the shoot to get my act right'.
