Actor Arulnidhi who hogged the spotlight with his Mouna Guru act, has hit a rough patch with his next in Asokamithran. The film is an ambitious effort by director Karu Palaniappan, having movies like Parthiban Kanavu, Sivappathigaram and Sadurangam, Palaniappan to his credit.
The Asokamithran director also had Arulnidhi, hitting the gym recently, to film some fight sequences for the film. He had scripted the film keeping Dhanush in mind, but then had the Mouna Guru hero stepping in for the role. Now it is learnt that the project won’t progress any further. With the first look posters out and music composer Thaman being roped in for this release, expectations were high. Director Karu Palaniappan himself had promised that the film would be a big one for his hero Arulnidhi, going on floors this February. “Karu Palaniappan and producers Mogana Movies did have matters to be sorted out but none of the party agreed on the lines. The dispute has landed the project in trouble and it might be dropped soon,” reveals an insider. There is also news that Arulnidhi has signed up for his next already. Directed by Ganesh Vinayak, it’s titled “Pagal Kollai”. The film will be produced by Arulnidhi’s cousin Dayanidhi Azhagiri under Cloud Nine Movies banner.Arulnidhi for sure is out of the mess.
