Merry Christmas: Pinocchio connection, six revelations by Sriram Raghavan

New Delhi, (UNI) Merry Christmas director Sriram Raghavan has offered insights into the various aspects of the movie, including casting, theme, and much more.

The action thriller, directed by Sriram Raghavan, brings together the fresh on-screen pairing of Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi and has piqued the interest of audiences with its intriguing trailer.

In a recent interview, the director talked about its connection with Pinocchio, the meticulous cuts in the trailer, and the casting of the lead couple.

The Tamil trailer for Merry Christmas offers a glimpse of Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi beneath the marquee of a theatre featuring the children’s classic, Pinocchio.

The timeless story revolves around a wooden puppet whose nose grows longer when he tells lies.

According to Pinkvilla, Raghavan revealed that his film is set in the early ’80s, and they’ve created their own version of the Pinocchio poster.

Raghavan pointed out the thematic resonance, stating, “We haven’t shown the movie on screen; you will only hear the soundtrack.

So, thematically, it’s very much like our film because it is about deception.”

In the Tamil version of Merry Christmas, Raghavan devised a “gibberish” version of Tamil for Katrina Kaif, who had to learn the language for her role.

He explained that, fortunately, she had already performed in the Hindi version, providing her with a foundation for the emotions and nuances of the scenes and characters.
