Alphonse Puthren's latest film "Premam" with Nivin Pauly in the lead has been doing a roaring business all over the world. The film has been receiving positive reviews from all quarters for its simple plot and characters.
Now, the film's director has written an open letter to "Chennai Express" director Rohit Shetty, asking him not to insult regional languages.
It has to be noted that the Tamil slang used by Deepika Padukone in "Chennai Express" was highly criticised by many. The director was also reportedly rapped for asking the actress to speak the South Indian language in the worst possible way.
"When you direct a hindi film that is going to be there in the mind of zillions of people watching it. Never unknowingly insult a whole community," Alphonse writes.
The recent letter by the "Neram" director is seen as a reply to Rohit, showing how to make good films by incorporating other languages into it.
He also asks Rohit to watch his latest film, "Premam", in which he has tried to keep up the standards of each language.
"Watch my film Premam. I have tried my best to keep up to the standards of each language. u might like it too," he adds.
One of the three heroines of the film is a Tamil character, Malar, played by debut actress Sai Pallavi. The character of Malar, as a Tamil college professor in Kerala, has become one of the favourites for the movie-goers.
