Pa ranjith

Director Rajesh Rajamani on making the short film 'The Discreet Charm of the Savarnas'.
Pa Ranjith is certainly not the first successful Dalit in the Tamil film industry, but no other artist has ever claimed or asserted their Dalit identity the way Ranjith does.
Pa Ranjith was viciously trolled on Twitter after videos of his speech went viral earlier this week.
The 'Kaala' director hopes the festival will help society talk about caste discrimination, gender bias and other important subjects.
