Director Sudha Kongara’s last Tamil directorial Irudhi Suttrua, which stars R. Madhavan in the lead, has been selected for 29th Tokyo International Film Festival. She believes such an honour so early on in her career is very special.
The festival is slated to take place between October 25 and November 3.
"It really feels special to know that aIrudhi Suttru’ has been selected to be screened at Tokyo film fest. I see this honour as an impetus to continue doing my good work," Sudha said.
The film will be screened in the World Focus Section of the fest on October 31, November 1 and 2.
In Irudhi Suttru, Madhavan played a washed-up boxing coach who finds a champion in a fish-seller.
The film had simultaneously released in Hindi as Saala Khadoos.
