The royal black horse was used by Surya for the role of a king-turned-monk in the forthcoming Tamil movie. Sources say that it was trained stallion for the important portions of the film. As the shooting of the film has been come to an end, it was auctioned near Erode, which is well-known place for selling the four-legged animal.
Sources further claim that Surya and other team members of 7 Aum Arivu had a special attachment with the black horse and they wished that it would be in the safe hands. Hence, they put up the auction. It was sold for Rs 5 lakhs.
Meanwhile, the audio of Surya and Shruti Hassan starrer movie will hit the stores today. 7 Aum Arivu directed by AR Murugadoss will release for Diwali.
