Lyricist Arunraja Kamaraj, who shot to fame with his songs and singing, is to turn director with a sports film.

More interestingly, the film will be based on women's cricket. 

Commenting on the development, Arunraja said, "I was driven to cinema by direction. Direction has always been my passion and aim. I wrote and directed many short films and participated in many short film competitions and also worked as an assistant director in Vettai Mannan (2016) to polish my directorial skills. Now, I feel confident enough to direct a movie. This is going to be a sports-based film, focusing on women's cricket."

Giving details of the script, Arunraja said, "I wrote this script much before the recently concluded women's cricket World Cup in which our Indian team won millions of hearts. This story is about following our passion and how crucial a family's support is to a person chasing her dream. This film will beautifully portray a father and a daughter who wants to make it big in women's cricket. I have also written a few moving scenes inspired from real life."

The director announced that he will be conducting auditions for the film. "We are going to conduct an audition to cast the heroine and the supporting cast," Arunraja said. "We are looking at people who can both play cricket and act well. We are determined to showcase many unexplored talents and I'm sure the audition process will go a long way in helping us to achieve that. I am really excited about my dream being realized."

Those interested in auditioning for a role in the film can send their portfolios to iswearicanact@gmail.com, the director said.
