Actor Aari made his silver screen debut through the film Rettaisuzhi which hit the screens under the directorial of story teller Thamira. The venture was bankrolled by director Shankar under his home banner S Pictures. The project had veteran directors Bharathiraja and late K. Balachander in pivotal roles but unfortunately the venture failed to live up to the expectations of the audience. Following it the actor starred in an unnoticed drama Maalai Pozhudhin Mayakathilaey before landing in the lead role in the romantic crime drama Nedunchaalai which hit the theaters in the year 2014 under the direction of film maker N. Krishna. The actor received critical acclamations for his performance as a road mugger from the critics in the industry and from the audience. The actor who has never had more than one release in a calendar year is currently having a busy year and is expected to have a back to back release soon. Now we have an interesting update on the actor’s next project.
The actor who was last seen on screens in the horror thriller Nagesh Thiraiyarangam helmed by Mohammad Issack has signed a new project. The yet to be titled drama is set to be scripted and directed by debutant director Rajasekara Pandian, an erstwhile assistant of Vasantha Balan. Now, we have news coming in that Malayalam actress Lakshmi Menon has been roped in to play the female lead role in the entertainer. Our little birdie close to the actor says, “Aari will next star in a flick helmed by newcomer Rajasekara Pandian. The production unit is in talks with actress Lakshmi Menon and we hear the actress has also given a nod to star in the movie. However, we are still waiting for an official confirmation.” If this materializes, this venture will mark the first time association of both the actors. Well, this is an interesting pair. Guess, we will have to wait to see how the pair gels up on screen.
The project is still in its pre-production stage so the rest of the cast and crew that will be working in the entertainer is expected to be announced soon. Actress Lakshmi Menon was last seen in the action film Rekka alongside Vijay Sethupathi which hit the theaters in the year 2016. The actress is desperate to make her come back to the industry with a hit flick. Actor Aari is also craving to deliver a solid hit under his name to establish himself as a bankable hero in Tamil cinema industry. We will have to wait to see whether this entertainer aids the Nedunchaalai star to achieve his feat.
On the professional front, actor Aari is gearing up for the release of his next science fiction entertainer titled as Ellaam Mela Irukuravan Paathuppan directed by debutant story teller U. Kaviraj. The actor is currently busy shooting for his next movie titled as Aleka directed by S. S. Raja Mithran. Besides this project the actor also has Mounavalai, Maane Thaene Paeye, and Kadai Enn 6 in his pipeline. On the other hand, the actress is currently shooting for her upcoming movie titled as Yung Mung Sung under the directorial of S. Arjun in which she will be sharing the screen space with actor Prabhu Deva.
