The movie stars Karthi (brother of actor Surya) and Tamanna in lead roles. Bollywood actor Milind Soman has played the villain role. The movie is directed by Lingusamy, who has given hit films like Run and Anandam, which belonged to different genres. The director says, "My earlier film Pandem Kodi was a big hit in Telugu. I am confident Aawara would be a bigger hit than my earlier films."
Speaking about the film, Karthi says, "We have ensured dubbing in a perfect manner and on the lines of a straight film. Linguswamy"s direction and Yuvan Shankar Raja"s music would be assets for the movie."
Producer Gnanavel Raja says, "There is a very good response for the audio, which indicates that the film would also be a success. Karthi has already become famous with his recent film Yuganiki Okkadu and I am sure that he would earn more name after Aawara release."
Aawara, the Telugu version of Tamil superhit film Paiya, is all set to hit the screens on May 7. The movie has broken the records of block busters like Sivaji, Vettaikaran and Dasavatharam in terms of collection in Kollywood.
