Aravind Swamy of 'Roja' and 'Bombay' fame who made a successful comeback with Tamil film 'Thani Oruvan' in 2015, is now making a comeback in Bollywood.
Swamy last acted in Bollywood, with Manisha Koirala in 'Raja ko Rani se Pyar ho Gaya' in 2000, and is making a comeback after 15 years.
The actor is appearing in debutant director Tanuj Bhramar's film Dear Dad. The film showcases the bittersweet relationship between a 45-year-old father Nitin Swaminathan and his 14-year-old son Shivam.
Arvind is said to have chosen this film to return to Bollywood because he found the subject fascinating and these kind of stories donâ€™t get made very often and need to be told.
In the film, the father-son duo are on a road trip from their home in Delhi to Mussoorie (Uttarakhand), where the son attends boarding school. During the trip, the duo faces unexpected situations, meets strangers and has accidental meetings â€“ all these add up to a complicated tale.
The actor was spotted by ace director Mani Ratnam through one of his ads and he launched him in Rajinikanth's Thalapathy. Aravind later achieved critical acclaim in Mani Ratnam's Roja.
The movie is slated to release on May 6, 2016.
