Raj TV to promote students' movie projects

MUMBAI: Tamil general entertainment channel Raj TV has associated with a group of student filmmakers. The channel aspires to capitalise from the visibility it gets when the movie gets released in various colleges in Tamil Nadu.



A Raj TV official said the channel would be putting up posters and hoardings in the premises of the colleges where the movie will be released. He didn't rule out the possibility of the channel airing the movie promos.

"Our attempt is to attract the youth segment to our channel. So we have decided to associate with the project," he said. When queried if Raj TV is funding the project, he answered in the negative.



The film Oonjal is made by a group of eleven students in the first year batch of Visual Communication course in Chennai's Loyola College. The students are also taking care of all the technical aspects of the film production. The film is directed by 19-year old Nachi Appan who is the son of Raj TV chairman and MD Rajendran.



"The film is a love story based on women issues," says Appan, adding that the movie will be released in colleges across Tamil Nadu. Appan is planning a bid budget movie next, which would be released in theatres. He has also sung two songs for Oonjal the music of which was released by A R Rehman's sister A R Rehna.
