Thirty years in film industry and yet action king Arjun strikes with the same spectacular shows as he posed three decades ago. Looking young, zippy, and energetic is his unparalleled USP. With his four important films scheduled for release by the end of 2010, the actor is busy now simultaneously shooting for these projects.
The first to hit the screens in this league will be his bilingual movie Vande Mataram, in which he has shared screen space with Malayalam superstar Mammootty. This film is directed by D. Aravindan and is produced by Henry under the banner of Pankaj Productions. His other film Maasi directed by Kiccha features him as a cop, who doesn’t use his brawniness, but his brains to spifflicate the baddies.
Striding away from these films will be Vallakottai as Arjun performs an unusual role of a petty thief. Literally vexed with his fraudulent acts, he decides to give up. But his arrival in Vallakottai, a district in Southern Tamil Nadu has different plans for him. Filmmaker Kiccha adds that the film will be racy enough to keep audiences on edge of their seats, with a climax studded with breathtaking stunts.
Arjun’s Mei Kaan will be a thriller set in the backdrop of Malaysia and is directed by Major Ravi, who recently completed shooting for his multilingual movie Kandahar with superstars Mohan Lal and Amitabh Bachchan.
