We had earlier reported about Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela co-writer George Kora turning director with a film titled Thirike.
The latest update is that the film, which has Sam Xavier as co-director, will premiere on NeeStream from February 26.
Thirike revolves around two brothers Ismu, a Down Syndrome-affected boy and his younger sibling, Thoma.
Thirike is the first mainstream Indian film featuring a Down Syndrome-affected actor in a lead role. Gopi Krishnan, 22, plays Ismu. The film is said to be a lighthearted drama celebrating differently-abled individuals.
