Revealing that the plot of director Mani Bharathi's upcoming film Battery focuses on the practices of some unscrupulous elements in the medical profession who were exploiting the fear of the people for monetary gains, actor Soori said that the film is important as it seeks to create awareness about some alarming activities.
Speaking at the trailer and audio release function of the film starring Senguttuvan and Ammu Abhirami of Cooku With Comali fame, in the lead, Soori said, he was at this function because director Lingusamy, who is in Hyderabad, called and asked him to attend this event.
"When he called, I initially thought that he was inviting me for the song release function of his upcoming Telugu film. However, he informed me that he was inviting me for not his film's event but the function of director Mani Bharathi's Battery."
Soori added that he was touched by the friendship between directors Lingusamy and Mani Bharathi. "Lingusamy is a kind-hearted person who believes that his associate should also be as successful as him. When director Mani Bharathi called me a few minutes later, I told him that I would come for the event but told him I didn't know what to say as I have not acted in the film."
Soori, further, said, Mani Bharathi narrated to him the script crisply and briefly. “What he told shocked me. I asked whether these things were happening even now. He replied, 'yes'. If the life of a loved one is in danger, we tend to try and save that. We are scared for their well-being. Under such circumstances, we turn to only two people: Either we rush to God or doctors. In such times, some unscrupulous people make money out of people's fear. Battery is a much-needed film as it seeks to create awareness on such activities.”
The makers are yet to decide the release date of Battery.
