Vishal and Arya to star in Irumugan director’s next
After ‘Avan Ivan’, Tamil stars Vishal and Arya are coming together yet again. They are reuniting for a new film which will be directed by Anand Shankar. Ritu Varma, who is currently on a high after the superhit success of ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ has been signed as the female lead. SS Thaman will be handling the music department.
Anand Shankar, a former associate of AR Murugadoss, made his debut with the action thriller ‘Arima Nambi’. He followed it up with the Vikram starrer ‘Irumugan’ and later with ‘NOTA’, a political drama starring Vijay Deverakonda. The director’s new film with Vishal, Arya and Ritu Varma is expected to be an action-packed commercial entertainer.
Vishal and Arya were supposed to act together in ‘Irumbu Thirai’. The latter was initially cast as the antagonist but he later opted out as he felt it was not the right time to play villain role. Action king Arjun replaced him in the film. It is heard that in Anand Shankar’s upcoming film, Arya’s character will be a grey shaded one.
More details are expected to be formally announced by the makers very soon.
