A sports-centric film coming up

National award-winning director Narasimha Nandi is now making another path-breaking movie Dakshina Madhya Railway Jattu. “It revolves around women kabbadi, and actor Sivaji will be playing the role of their coach; and, for the first time, a sport-centric film is being made on women kabbadi,” says the director, who claims to have roped in real-life kabbadi players to play key roles. “It’s a tough sport,” he adds. Can this off-beat film-maker become a mainstream film-maker, with this themetic film? Let’s wait and see.
