Commenting on the association, Rahul Johri, EVP and GM – South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “Discovery is credited with bringing programmes that explore India’s vibrant traditions and rich culture. Rediscovering the ancient dance forms of Tamil Nadu, the film’s narrative is also on similar lines and makes this integration a natural fit.”
Bala, Writer and Director of Thaarai Thappattai said, “We are very happy to associate with Discovery Tamil, one of the most popular channels in the region. I believe it is an ideal platform to spread the information about the life of Karagatam musicians, dancers in Tanjore and ancient Tamil dance form that are fading out in today’s modern world.”
‘Director Bala’s Thaarai Thappattai’ is touted as a film about traditional arts of Tamil Nadu. The movie is a landmark in renowned music maestro Ilaiyaraja’s illustrated career as it marks the veteran’s 1000th film as a music composer.
