Chennai: Producer Sushant Prasad says his upcoming Tamil action-thriller "Pugazh" will appeal to the audiences because it's the story of an underdog, and it's easier for them to relate to such characters on screen.
Directed by Manimaran, the film features Jai Sampath in the lead.
"All our lives knowingly or unknowingly we have always rooted for the underdog, maybe because we see ourselves in them. Everybody loves an underdog. 'Pugazh' is the story of one such underdog trying to overcome several hurdles," Prasad said in a statement.
The film is titled after Jai's role in the film, which also features Surabhi as the female lead.
"Pugazh" is currently in its second schedule of shooting.
