The shooting of ‘Ezhaam Arivu’, which would be the (ideal?) launch-pad of Shruti Haasan as heroine in Tamil films, is said to be progressing at a brisk pace. The film, which has Suriya in the lead opposite Shruti, is being directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who catapulted Suriya to superstardom with his mega-hit ‘Ghaniji’ more than 4 years ago.
The film, which would be the stunning Shruti’s first on-screen appearance in Kollywood, has already triggered excitement and expectations among all her fans and fans of her father, Kamal Haasan. Suriya, who never shies away from experimenting with his looks and roles, is said to be playing a circus performing artiste in the film, for which he had reportedly underwent several rigorous training schedules.
Sources close to Udhayanidhi, producer of ‘Ezhaaam Arivu’, say that the audio-launch of the film is likely to be held toward end-March. Audio major Sony has acquired the audio-rights of the film at a premium price. The producer and director have kept a surprise element at the audio-launch to thrill the audience.
Suriya, who plays a circus artiste in the film, is all set to perform live on stage (some acrobatics and stunts he has performed in the film) for the benefit of his fans on the day of the audio-launch. The actor, who always loves to perform his own stunts, has done the same in ‘Ezhaam Arivu’ too without making use of a ‘dupe’ or a ‘body double’.
With Suriya enjoying quite a good number of fan-following in Andhra, the film would be released in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously.
