He would share his experience with some small real-life incidents that inspired me to come up with a fictional presentation. I thank my producers Sudhan Sundaram sir and Jayaram sir for encouraging my efforts and materializing this project. I thank Aha Tamil for showing interest in this project and premiering it worldwide on May 27, 2022. Pothanur Thabal Nilayam will be a fresh and unique experience for the audiences as we have tried making the screenplay gripping and engaging. I believe the audience will accept our content and appreciate it.” Director-actor Praveen continues to add that PTN is the first-ever movie in India to be made with a post office as the central backdrop.
