According to the grapevine, Arya is about to attempt something that heroes of his calibre will not even dare to think about – he is about to act play a villain in a Telugu film. A frontline hero like Arya playing a villain is a rarity. It is a one-of-a-kind experiment which shows how much Arya loves acting. It is this passion for showmanship – which spurs him into accepting roles that would make other heroes feel jittery – that makes him stand out! His recent Naan Kadavul is a good example. Well, that is how a showman should be – always ready to enthrall his viewers with the unthinkable. If not for heroes like Arya, showmanship in Kollywood would be extinct.
The news is that Andhra Pradesh’s famous director Gunasekhar – who made the blockbuster Okkadu (Mahesh Babu), which was later remade into Ghilli with Vijay, breaking several box office records – is making a film with Allu Arjun in the lead. The yet-to-be-titled film requires a handsome and enchanting villain; apparently, this character is as important as the hero of the film.
Gunasekhar, who was moved by Arya’s performance in Nenu Devuduni (Naan Kadavul’s Telugu dubbed version), decided that none other than Arya would do justice to this character in his fortchoming movie. Expressing his awe for the young actor’s work in Nenu Devuduni, Gunasekhar has said that he never even envisaged that someone could act so well. The director has reportedly added that Arya is blessed with a natural glint in his eyes, which adds to his performance.
With a mysterious glint in his eyes and an unyielding spark within to enthrall his fans with something new every time, Arya is one of the bravest heroes of Tamil Cinema.
