Ezham Arivu is the film which has Surya and Shruthi Haasan in the lead roles. This film which has been directed by A R Murugadoss has Surya in dual roles. This high budgeted film is being produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin under the banner Red Giant Movies.
When asked Udhayanidhi Stalin about this film, he said,” In the fifth century there lived a Buddhist monk called Bodhidharma at Kanchipuram. This film speaks about his life and the special people who lived with him. A R Murugadoss has cleverly linked that with this present era.
There is also an explanation of the DNA of our ancestors. Even today people in China worship Bodhidharma. Because of this, there will be some dialogues and song in Cantonese languages.
