The pre-release talk of the Aarya-Anushka starrer Irandaam Ulagam (IU) has been pretty good, going by the industry standards. For once, the film brings together for the first time on screen the ‘hot’ pair of Aarya and Anushka. The next surprise about the film is that it has been wrapped up in record time by its director Selvaraghavan who usually takes his own time in completing his films.
Anushka was praised by her co-star Aarya as being very ‘determined’ and ‘brave’ in conducting herself when the film’s final schedule was shot in Georgia, situated in the north of Russia. Anushka, incidentally, was the only female among the crew numbering more than 80 but she didn’t make it affect her work and the film’s shoot progressed in an unhindered manner, it is learnt.
The two A’s, Aarya and Anushka, reportedly bonded big time during the film’s shoot. The friendship has reached another level that Anushka even taught Aarya the significance of performing yoga on a daily basis. Readers might recall that Anushka is a trained yoga instructor and was running yoga classes prior to becoming an actress.
As such, Aarya played the ‘perfect’ student and learnt the nuances of yoga from Anushka. Even after returning to Chennai, Aarya is said to have developed the habit of performing yoga in the morning everyday and whenever he needs any doubts or clarifications, all he has to do is to make a phone call to the lovely Anushka who immediately settles the issue(s).
Who wouldn’t be learning yoga if the instructor teaching the art happens to be as pretty and as tempting as Anushka?
