All in one
The Jack of all trades is back. T Rajendar who wears many hats with ease, is on to his new venture, Oru Thalai Kadhal. He scripts, directs, composes the music and pens the lyrics, apart from playing the lead role. It’s a village-centric plot where he plays a singer. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised. Two new faces are slated to play the female leads. Rajendar is one of the few makers whose enthusiasm and passion for films has never waned over the years.
