Arvind Swamy to play villain in Vishal-Trisha starrer

Arvind Swamy to play villain

Remember Arvind Swamy who debuted as ‘Collector’ in Rajini’s super-hit film ‘Thalapathy’ almost two decades back? The stunning-looking Arvind Swamy, who was introduced in films by ace director Maniratnam, went on to star in successful movies such as ‘Roja’, ‘Bombay’ and ‘Minsara Kanavu’. The urban-looking Swamy couldn’t handle village subjects and hence sustain himself as a leading hero for a long time.

More than a decade after he starred in his last film, Arvind Swamy would now be making a comeback in Tamil films. He played a brief role in Maniratnam’s ‘Alaipayudhae’, though, which launched Madhavan in Tamil films as hero. This time Arvind won’t be playing the hero but a villain in Vishal’s upcoming film. The film, to be directed by Thiru, would have Vishal pairing up opposite Trisha for the first time.

Arvind Swamy, in the intervening decade, had put on weight around his once-slim waist and lost some hair. Arvind has a successful business running on the professional front. Though he was courted by many directors to star in their films, he had always shied away saying he would star in a particular film only if the script appealed to him.

Thiru’s script appeared to have re-kindled the acting instincts which lay buried for a long time deep inside Arvind Swamy’s heart and he immediately agreed to star in the film.

It’d be surely interesting to see how Swamy pulls off his villain’s role, considering the fact that he has only played hero’s roles so far!
