UTV Motion Pictures announced its next Tamil film Purampokku (No Man’s Land) to be written and directed by National award winning director SP Jhananathan.

SP Jhananathan has directed films like Iyarkai, E and Peranmai. In a casting coup of sorts the director has roped Arya and Vijay Sethupathi to play the males leads. The search is on for the heroine and music director.

 G Dhananjayan, Chief – South Business, Studios, Disney UTV said : “We are delighted to work with SP Jhananathan, who is known for his mass commercial films which had a strong message for the audience. We are also happy to have Arya and Vijay Sethupathi on board as the leading actors”

The director SP Jhananathan explained that, though the title Purampokku is used colloquially to demean others, the word has deeper meaning and has historical importance. Mountains and snow peeks, poles, sea, desert all are Purampokku.
The film will be produced by UTV Motion Pictures in association with S.P. Jhananathan’s Binary Pictures and is currently under pre-production and will go on floors in October / November 2013.
