Navarasa is a nine part Netflix original which is gearing up for premiere on August 6, 2021 (Friday) on the OTT platform. Based on nine emotions - anger, compassion, courage, disgust, fear, laughter, love, peace and wonder, Navarasa is produced by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan and brings together a plethora of stars and talents.
One of the stories of Navarasa, which is based on the emotion wonder is the Karthick Naren directed Project Agni. Arvind Swami and Prasanna play leads in this story and recently the director revealed that his premise is about a conversation between two people.
"The conversation that Aravind Swami Sir and Prasanna have in this film is a conversation that I had in my mind for a very long time. Prasanna Sir's character is like that other voice you have in your head. The questions that Prasanna Sir asks and the answers that Aravind Swami gives is an extension of the conflicts a person has in his mind.", the director was quoted as saying.
‘Navarasa’ ... Nervous & excited at the same time. This script has always been a dream project for me (An unadulterated SCI-FI) & it would have never seen the light of the day if not for Mani Ratnam sir🙏🏻 Can’t wait for you all to explore it! Streaming soon on Netflix. 🤞🏻🎬❤️ pic.twitter.com/dXx9nKj9TT— Karthick Naren (@karthicknaren_M) March 3, 2021
