Director Sarjun KM, who made the popular short film Lakshmi in 2017, went on to make a few projects in Tamil. After three back-to-back OTT releases, he is now back with another outing which also is skipping theatrical release. Titled Burqa, it stars Kalaiyarasan and Mirnaa in lead roles.
Madras Productions and SKLS Galaxy Mall Productions have jointly bankrolled the movie which was nominated in New York Indian Film Festival 2022, 30th Chichester International Film Festival 2022 and RIFFA (Regina International Film Festival) Official Selection 2022.
G Balamurugan and R Sivatmikha have handled cinematography and music composition respectively for Burqa which has lyrics penned by Yugabharathi. Anusuya Vasudevan has written the screenplay for the project which has editing by B Pravin Baaskar and art direction by Madhan.
Sarjun's previous projects, The Road That Never Ends (Addham), Blood Money and Thunindha Pinn (Navarasa), had direct OTT releases on aha, Zee5 and Netflix respectively.
Burqa will drop on aha Tamil on April 7. The digital platform announced the news sometime ago, leaving the audience surprised. Jiiva unveiled the first look poster of the movie. The makers are expected to come up with promo videos and other surprises in the coming days.
Kalaiyarasan's last outing was Silambarasan-starrer Pathu Thala which hit the screens a couple of days ago. The much-delayed rom-com Titanic Kadhalum Kavundhu Pogum is his next release. Mirnaa, on the other hand, has Rajinikanth's Jailer in her kitty. Burqa is her second OTT release in Tamil after Anandham which dropped on Zee5 last year.
