Just like Pa Ranjith’s earlier films that were noted for its powerful discussion of caste and politics, ‘Salpetta’ is also expected to deal with topics like oppression and discrimination that happens in the field of kick-boxing in Tamil Nadu. The story is set in the 80s timeline in the North Madras region. Arya is seen sporting a ripped physique for which he has been training continuously for the last seven months.
Interestingly, the makers have already shot around 50% of the film. On the technical front, cinematographer Murali and music director Santhosh Narayanan, both of whom are regulars in Ranjith’s films have been retained. Stunt master duo AnbuAriv will be handling the action choreography.
