Arya plays Mohanlal’s son in Kaappaan
Last day, the grand audio launch event of ‘Kaappaan’ was held in Chennai. Superstar Rajinikanth, director Shankar and legendary lyricist Vairamuthu were the cheif guests at the event. The movie directed by KV Anand has a stellar cast comprising of Suriya, Mohanlal, Arya and Sayyesha. All the lead actors were present for the launch.
‘Kaappaan’ has Mohanlal playing the role of Indian Prime Minister, Chandrakanth Varma, and Suriya as the high-rank National Security Guard (NSG) officer, who is in charge of the PM’s security. Interestingly, Arya plays the role of Mohanlal’s son in the film. It must be noted that, the role was originally supposed to be played by Telugu actor Allu Sirish, but he had to opt out due to other commitments.
Arya joined the team later and shot for his portions in various Indian and foreign locations. It was during the shoot of ‘Kaappaan’ that he fell in love with his co-star Sayyeshaa. The two got married in March this year. During yesterday’s audio launch event, Arya opened up about how he approached Sayyeshaa’s mother to seek her approval.
‘Kaappaan’ cast also includes Arya, Sayyeshaa, Boman Irani, Shamna Kasim and Samuthirakani in major roles. Lyca Productions is producing the movie. Besides Tamil, it is also releasing in Telugu as ‘Bandobast’. The movie is scheduled for a grand release on August 30.
