“Pitha is an emotional story about a father and a daughter. It talks about an issue that we need to know in-depth. It also stresses on the fact about how important girl children are in our society. Mathiyalagan plays the dad in Pitha,” says Aathityaa. He adds that the film will be in complete contrast to his debut film Savarakathi. “Savarakathi was a dark humour that revolved around a liar and a gangster. This is entirely different. One thing common that Pitha and Savarakathi have is that both these films do not have a clichéd template. We will begin shooting for the film immediately post lockdown. The story is set in the backdrop of a town and we are planning to shoot the film in Coimbatore as of now,” he tells.
Pitha will have Kalaiyarasan, Ramesh Thilak, Anukeerthy Vyas and Radha Ravi in important roles. Prasanna Kumar of Sivappu Manjal Pacchai fame is the cinematographer. “I showed the script to Mysskin anna and he was happy with the way it has developed over the months. He is also one of the producers for Pitha,” he concluded.
