P.S. Vinothraj

P.S. Vinothraj

P. S. Vinothraj is from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. He dropped out of school when he was in class IV owing to poverty. To overcome financial difficulties at home, he became a child labourer at age eight and worked in a textile factory in Tiruppur until he turned 19. He then sold DVDs at a roadside shop in Chennai. During this time, he met a few people from the Tamil film Industry and eventually became assistant director to Mr. Sargunam, a Tamil filmmaker. He worked with him for almost four years on two film projects. He then worked as an assistant director for ‘Manal Magudi’, a post-modernistic theatre troupe established by Mr. Muruga Boopathy in Kovilpatti, Tamil Nadu. He utilised his time during this venture to shoot a few short films. Koozhangal (Pebbles), his debut feature, was inspired by his personal life.
