Director Ashok Kumar has some inspiring stories behind Neruppuda, the movie that is based on the life of firefighters and their struggle against natural disasters.

“During my time in the housing board, I could see a lot of people living in fear due to the accidents that happen from time to time. The fire brigade was always dedicated to their job and would never hesitate to risk their lives. My story ties the lives of the common man and his ambitious profession,” said director Ashok Kumar.
