Actors Arya and Vishal are known to be the best friends in film industry. They were also seen as half-brothers in Bala’s ‘Avan Ivan’ and on several occasions they have expressed their fondness for each other.
‘With the kind of affection between us, how could I reject my best buddy Vishy (Vishal) when he offered me a negative role in his film? It was a decision made by Vishy and I believe he has a challenging role for me. I don’t even know the script as he called and I just agreed,” Arya says, in his bid to confirm that he has come on board to essay the villain role in his friend’s new film.
For his upcoming film ‘Irumbu Thirai’, Vishal has roped in Arya to play the villain role. Although Arya has played roles with negative shades in Telugu and Malayalam films, it will be the first time for him to play the role of villain in a Tamil film.
Directed by debutant Mithran, this interesting project has Samantha Ruth Prabhu playing the leading lady. Yuvan Shankar Raja will score the music.
