Spilling the beans on the project Suresh Krishna says, “Rape victims either die or survive. Those who survive hesitate to speak up thanks to the stigmas attached to rape.
The victims of rape are punished for no mistake of them. My serial will focus on the emotional trauma faced by rape victims and their families. It will also have equal share of family sentiments and emotions and will be suitable to all audiences”.
Suresh Krishna has also stated that he will not be directing the entire serial and will be supervising the direction. But he says he will be directing a few episodes whenever he finds the job interesting.
‘Arangetram’ will be telecast as a daily soap from 26th of May at 8 PM in ‘Puthuyugam’ channel.
