Telugu actress Sri Divya, whose latest movie Manasara became a big hit in Andhra, is making her debut in Tamil with Vidharth-starrer Kaatumalli. Directed by debutant Mangaleswaran, who has worked with the ace director Bharathiraja, the movie is set in a forest. “We first saw Sri Divya in an advertisement and knew immediately that she would be the heroine in our film Kaatumalli. Only after approaching her did we realise she was already a star in Telugu cinema,” says Vidharth.

According to the actor, Sri Divya will play a tribal girl in a forest which he, playing a youngster in a city, will visit for work.

Vidharth assures that Kaatumalli will portray the real lifestyle of tribals.

“We are currently on a location hunt while we are also talking to tribal people to get a taste of their lifestyle. They don’t live the way films portray them,” says Vidharth.

The actor says tribal people will also be part of the film and Kaatumalli will document their actual lifestyle as well. “We have planned to begin shooting from March 9,” Vidharth says.
