Initially, it was decided that Amitabh Bachchan would appear in a guest role in Aruvadai (starring Mammootty, Arjun and Sneha and being made in Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously).
Though Big B agreed readily, he was not able to tell exactly when he would be able to participate in the filming due to his overflowing schedule, especially with his “Unforgettable Tour” keeping him occupied. Aruvadai’s filming has all been completed except for its climax, where Big B was supposed to play a cameo. The film crew had decided to wait for him.
But now, his participation seems extremely doubtful or might be further delayed with doctors advising him to rest after he suffered a bout of colitis and intestinal obstruction recently. It is heard that the think-tank of Aruvadai has changed its decision and will rope in another famous Bollywood celebrity to play this role to avoid any further delay in the film’s release.
Aruvadai is directed by Aravindan and produced by Henry.
