Aarya has been making steady progress in the world of Tamil films. The Kerala-born actor, who debuted in Tamil films through a powerful role in Vishnuvardhan’s Arindhum Ariyamalum a few years back, has made it to the list of frontline actors by his sheer hardwork.
The versatility displayed by the actor in films like Naan Kadavul, Madarasapattinam, Avan Ivan and Bosss Engira Baskaran have earned him the tag of a bankable actor. After last year’s Avan Ivan which had him playing a commoner’s role, Aarya was back to his best in an action-packed role in Lingusamy’s Vettai which hit the screens during Pongal last month and has been running successfully ever since.
Some time back, Aarya had a long chat with Saravanan, who debuted as director with last year’s Engeyum Eppodhum. The film, which had a powerful script and mighty good performances by the lead actors, ran to packed houses. Saravanan, who was roped in by Lingusamy to make a film for his Tirrupathi Brothers, narrated a script to Aarya and won his appreciation.
Even as Saravanan was making arrangements for the film’s muhurat, Aarya reportedly called him up to say that he didn’t like the script and was opting out of the film. What transpired in the past few days still remains unclear. Last heard, Tollywood’s Ram has been replaced to star in the film in place of Aarya. On his part, Aarya still maintains that he quit the film as he felt that the script may not be ‘suitable’ to his image.
