AL Vijay: Diya is not an anti-abortion film


In fact, have I asked people not to abort anywhere? I have not yet turned it into a full-fledged story. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App
© IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd That is all the film is about. It is about the foetus expressing its desire to have her mother. I wanted the film to convey what they feel, they also have a life right. They can’t communicate like us as they don’t enter the world in the human form. A still of Sai Pallavi from Diya. I should ensure that respect isn’t hampered, right? The intent was to never preach. It takes the ghost five years to begin its revenge. Even if you take the slide at the end, out of the several million people who are getting abortions about 56% are unsafe. “I am very happy majority of the people liked it. Diya documents a tale of the ghost of an aborted foetus coming back for revenge. Why? It was only after her studies, during her marriage she gets back into this life. What are probabilities of the sequel happening? The basic idea, I repeat, is to make the film as an expression of the foetus. Was this an intentional choice? Sai Pallavi’s character wasn’t even with her parents during that time. There is a brand that is associated. The Sai Pallavi starrer might have opened to mixed reviews but Vijay is content. The last slide in the film mentions that ‘Diya could have become a Kalpana Chawla or an Indira Gandhi’. So it has to be a film that is as respectable as its predecessor. The idea was to make a complete dance film in Tamil with Prabhudheva sir. The film documents a tale of the ghost of an aborted foetus coming back for revenge. Lakshmi, your next film with Prabhudheva, is a dance film. It definitely wasn’t a conscious choice — I did do films like Devi, Vanamagan. Only the content decides the kind of film it will be, I don’t. 2018-05-03T12:40:24+05:30″>

Isn’t that a mention to foeticide, a completely different thing from abortion? The kid begins to see her father and grandfather and hence, the revenge begins. My films just tell stories. Also, there are reports that Thalaivaa 2 is about to happen. It is not being done in the right way, that is the message I intended to convey. I have been getting only that,” he said. In fact, there is also a line in the film when the man mentions ‘Five years unna pakakudathu, pesa kudathu’ (We haven’t seen or spoken to each other in five years.). Even he has mentioned it to be one of his films that he likes. She goes away for five years to pursue her doctoral studies and she is not with anyone during that period. I wasn’t making a general statement. Vijay sir has to decide that, not me. How did you perceive making a dance film and what can you tell us about the project? It definitely is not an anti-abortion film. I can’t ask people to do something or not to do something. It is too early to talk about it, but I can tell it is a story between a master and his student. In a conversation with indianexpress.com, AL Vijay answered all questions about Diya and his upcoming films as well. In the pro-life vs pro-choice debate, several people have felt that Diya took an anti-abortion stance. I am not commenting whether abortions are right or wrong, I didn’t even debate on it. A lot of people loved Thalaivaa. But that’s it. So many women die as a result of using wrong methods — that was my concern. It has to be a Vijay film. Even Karu and Lakshmi, a dance film, are extremely different kind of projects. I have the basic idea for the sequel — the spark for the script. With a sensitive core, the film left the audience with several questions in mind. I don’t know. The statement was in particular about Diya, considering that she was a female child. It is the expression of a foetus about her life. Most of your films have children as their core — let it be Deivathirumagal, Saivam, Diya or even your next film, Lakshmi. Known for his heart-tugging tales, Diya was no different from AL Vijay’s earlier films in terms of the emotional quotient. The child has grown with the mother during that time. I think people need to clearly understand the film.
