Commenting on the new launch, Colors Tamil business head Anup Chandrasekharan said, “We have kick-started 2019 with great enthusiasm and an exciting line up of content on the fiction and non-fiction front. When we began our journey in Tamil Nadu, we wanted to celebrate women’s unparalleled strength to move mountains through all our fiction shows. We have captured each of the challenges new age women face as they progress in life through our characters in Perazhagi, Sivagami, Vandhal Sridevi and many more. Today we are witnessing another two powerful women joining our family and it gives us great pride to continue our journey of delivering differentiated, powerful content. The tales are visually compelling and are packed with social messages making it appealing for the viewers.”
