‘Aval’ marks the Tamil production debut of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, who has co-produced the film with Siddharth’s home banner Etaki Entertainment.
Siddharth said it’s an honour to be a part of Viacom’s first Tamil production as an actor and a writer.
“My director Milind Rau and I have been best friends for more than 16 years. We both joined as assistants to Mani Ratnam sir on the same day. We have known each other’s beliefs, thoughts on cinema and life ever since,” said Siddharth who has co-written the film with director Milind Rau.
“The film is based on a true story. The core plot of the movie happened to someone whom we know in our real life. It took us nearly four years to complete the script. We’ve meticulously worked our guts out to shape the script since we both are hardcore horror fans,” said Siddharth.
