Aranmanai 3 and a film with Suriya sir under Hari sir’s direction in Tamil.. Will give more clarity about two projects in Telugu that are under discussions, once the lockdown is over ☺️ https://t.co/sSIESmG3FJ— Raashi (@RaashiKhanna) May 3, 2020
Earlier, several popular actresses including Rashmika Mandanna, Pooja Hegde, and Tamannah Bhatia were said to be in talks for Aruvaa. It was even rumoured that Pooja Hegde has signed the dotted line. But the Ala Vaikunthapurramloo actress slammed the rumours through her official Twitter page and confirmed that she has not signed the Suriya starrer.
According to the reports, Suriya will appear in a never-seen-before get-up in Aruvaa, which is said to be an out and out family entertainer set in the rural backdrop. Reportedly, senior comedian Vadivelu has been roped in to play a pivotal role in this Hari directorial. The rest of the star cast is expected to be revealed soon.
In a recent chat show, Gnanavel Raja, the producer of Aruvaa had hinted that Aruvaa is more like a mix of Suriya-Hari duo's 2007-released superhit movie Vel and the 2018-released Karthi starring blockbuster Kadaikutty Singam, which was directed by Pandiraj. According to Raja, the Suriya starrer will predominantly focus on the relationships between brothers.
D Imman will compose the songs and background score for the project. Reportedly, the major portions of the movie will be shot at the various locations of Thirunelveli, Rameshwaram, and Ramnad. Aruvaa is expected to start rolling once the all India lockdown is wrapped up.
