Tamil actor Arvind Swamy, after a long hiatus, returned to cinema earlier this year. Mani Ratnam brought him back again with Kadal, which bombed at the Box Office. But his performance did not go unnoticed as critics and audience saw the old charm in him again. Now, he is getting ready to re-enter Bollywood.
His upcoming movie will be directed by none other than Mahesh Manjrekar (The main baddie in Ajith Kumar's recent movie Arrambam). It will be simultaneously made in Tamil too. Other cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
Arvind Swamy himself has announced the news on Twitter. On the social networking sites, he wrote, "my next film will be.......... a bilingual....in hindi and tamil....more details later. It's a film that will be directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. Will let you know the other artistes as soon as the casting is finalised."
His last movie in Bollywood was Raja Ko Rani Se Pyar Ho Gaya, 13 years ago. He was part of superhit Bollywood flicks like Roja and Bombay, both directed by Mani Ratnam. The actor, who made his debut with Thalapathi, has worked in close to twenty movies in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Bollywood.
