The trailer for the much-awaited Tiyaan starring actor siblings Indrajith and Prithviraj Sukumaran, hit the internet on Monday.
And besides the precise and measured narration by Prithviraj, and the intense backdrop against which the film is set, another highlight of the trailer is the shot of a young girl looking into the camera, burdened with woes.
The haunting face belongs to Nakshatra, Indrajith and Poornimaâ€™s daughter, who is making her acting debut with Tiyaan alongside her father and uncle.
In the trailer lasting 2.11 minutes, we get to see just one shot of Nakshatra. However, on Tuesday, actor Indrajith shared a poster of the film that shows Nakshatra in two avatars â€“ as a young innocent child in a school uniform and as an older and more determined young girl.
Indrajith shared the poster on Facebook, with the hashtag #NakshatraDebutesWithTiyaan. Nakshatra plays the role of Arya, the daughter of Pattabhiraman, played by Indrajith.
"There are a few memorable father-daughter moments in Tiyaan. As an actor, I'm grateful to everyone who gave us this chance," Indrajith wrote on Facebook.
The film, that is directed by debutant Jiyen Krishnakumar, is said to be a socio-political drama, set in north India.
While a major part of the shooting reportedly took place in Ramoji Rao Film City in Hyderabad, parts of the film were also shot in Pune, Mumbai and Nashik. The film is scripted by actor Murali Gopy.
According to reports, Prithviraj plays the role of Aslan Mohammad and the film is expected to hit theatres in time for Eid in late June. Interestingly, Tiyaan is the 15th film in which brothers Indrajith and Prithviraj will be seen working together.
