The trailer of Pandigai has grabbed everyone's attention, thanks to the street fighting angle, which also lead to a buzz that the film is inspired from David Fincher’s Fight Club.

But debutant Feroz denies such allegations, “Here, a lot of directors don’t really give credits to the films which inspired them but I can assure that Pandigai has nothing to do with Fight Club. Other than the street fighting angle, Pandigai  has a strong emotional quotient”.

“The film is all about a young man (Kreshna), who was refused all basic needs from his childhood, which forced to make big money through the street fight. Saravanan plays a fifty-five-year-old gambler named Muni. Friendship, betrayal and emotional bond between Kreshna and Saravanan accelerate the screenplay”, says the director.

Pandigai has 'Kayal' Anandhi playing Kreshna’s romantic interest. “We wanted someone to play innocent and has local features so roped in Anandhi, her character actually changes the motive of Kreshna in the film”, explains Feroz.

Produced by Feroz’s wife Vijayalakshmi, Pandigai is all set to release on July 14. Auraa Cinemas is distributing Pandigai.
