Directed by Ratna Kumar of Meyaadha Maan fame, the poster draws attention to the film’s title -- Aadai (Clothing). With toilet paper wrapped around her body and bloodied wounds on her hands and face, Amala Paul is seen crying while holding onto a rusted piece of plumbing in the poster.
Three words -- Arrogant, Audacious and Artistic -- are written below the film’s title. Written and directed by Ratna Kumar, the film’s cinematography is being handled by Vijay Karthik Kannan. The film’s music is being composed by singer Pradeep Kumar’s band Ookga. The film is being produced by Viji Subramanian.
Earlier, in an interview with Deccan Chronicle, director Ratna had said, “Aadai is a dark comedy, and Amala does not have a pair as such. Aimed at mature audiences, the script has enough engrossing and entertaining elements. And it will also address the issue of where to draw the line when it comes to freedom.”
Amala Paul was previously seen in Bhaskar Oru Rascal alongside Arvind Swamy. The film was a remake of the Malayalam hit Bhaskar The Rascal. The actor also has films like Raatchasan in Tamil and Aadujeevitham in Malayalam.
The actor recently opened up in an interview with TNM, saying that she was doing her own stunts in the Tamil thriller Adho Andha Paravai Pole. She had also hinted in the interview that Aadai’s poster will make people go “crazy” -- “It’s a kick-ass story. I told Rathna that I’ll do this film if we will work together as a team, and not have exclusive roles as a director and actor, that’s my idea. When you see the first look poster, you’ll go crazy. It’s something else, nobody has done it before.”
