Actor Arya who had done a splendid job in ‘Naan Kadavul’ is sharing his memories and lessons learnt during his shoot for Bala’s critically-acclaimed Naan Kadavul. In the film, Arya had strained himself a lot to live like an aghori baba.
The young actor Arya said, “Once I was roped in to play an aghori role in the film, I went there to study their lifestyle. During the shoot, I spent a lot of time on the ghats of Kasi and I was moved by all the incidents that were happening around me. I saw shocking sights like dead bodies floating on the river and they just made me reassess life as a whole.It is at the Kasi Ghats where we see life and death together.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if I say that I was a changed man after the shoot. The ghats presents a unique combination of physical, metaphysical and supernatural elements. I would suggest that all of us visit the ghats at least once during our lifetime. It will definitely be an enlightening experience,”.
