'Kumki' will be released on December 14
Tamil drama 'Kumki' revolves around a mahout and his trained elephant.
Directed by Prabhu Solomon, 'Kumki' features debutant Vikram Prabhu, the grandson of yesteryear actor Sivaji Ganesan. The movie also stars Lakshmi Menon, Thambi Ramaiah and Asvin Raja.
"After 'Mynaa', when I was travelling for my next script I came across many newspaper reports about elephants causing havoc in villages, and that was a daily affair. I visited those villages, travelled with the people and realised that because villagers are encroaching their land, the displaced elephants wander into human territory. So the villagers bring in ‘trained elephants‘ to drive away the intruding elephants. I weaved a story from there," said director Prabhu Solomon in an interview with The Hindu.
