The characters played by Surya and Shruti Hassan in 7 Aum
Arivu have been revealed. The Ghajini star will be
playing a dual role of a circus artist and a Buddhist monk in the
film. The actress will be seen in the role of a scientist.

different avatars, but now a source has claimed that the actor is

scientist, who discovers the connection between the two characters
played by the actor.
