Abhi Nakshatra, who portrayed the lead role in the Ayali series, was asked which scene she found challenging to act in during a special interview organized by our Galata Tamil. In response, she stated which can be roughly translated as "I did not hesitate to shoot the scene where I sat down in water after having the menstrual period. I thought I could use this opportunity to help viewers understand the pain. So I was happy to do the scene. But When I had to change my clothes after filming at the location, a centipede crawled into my shirt. This was not the first time insects had gotten onto my clothes, as beetles had also been a previous problem. My mom got scared when she saw the centipede. We went to the hospital as my body had bite marks. That was the scariest moment for me."
Ayali is a fictional web series set in the 1990s, in the village of Veerappanai. The show revolves around Thamizhselvi's struggle to challenge the 500-year-old tradition that requires young girls to get married as soon as they hit puberty. This tradition prevents girls in the village from getting educated beyond ninth grade. Thamizhselvi, who dreams of becoming a doctor, hides her puberty from her family and the village with the help of her mother Kuruvamma. As a result of a series of events, the decision pits the women against the men in the village and leads to the end of the tradition.
