Nayanthara’s Aramm is the talk of the town. The socio-political thriller which follows one day in the life of district collector Madhivadhani, played by Nayanthara, is growing from strength to strength at the box-office.

Despite registering a very poor opening on release day, the film picked up strongly over the weekend thanks to highly positive word-of-mouth and Nayanthara’s surprise visit to some theatres across Chennai.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that a sequel is in the offing and producer K. Rajesh has said that Aramm 2 will be even more powerful and hard-hitting. Directed by writer-turned-filmmaker Gopi Nainar, Madhi's abilities and her power as a collector are challenged when she has to deal with a life and death situation.

The film marks the directorial debut of Gopi, who owes his career to Nayanthara and he said he will always be indebted to her.

Apparently, Gopi’s script was turned by many producers before it caught the attention of Nayanthara, who agreed to do the film in just in the fifth minute of the narration. At a press meet in Chennai last Monday, Gopi said that Nayanthara vowed to get the film made when she agreed to be part of the project.

“I narrated the script to her at 12 pm and by 3 pm I was paid advance and asked to not worry about anything. She told me that it’s now her responsibility to get the film made. Even after she came on board, some vested interests tried to stop the film from taking off. Despite all the setbacks, she didn’t give up on the project and ensure that it got made. She owned the film. After we finished shooting, she told me that she not only wanted the film to release but also wants to see me succeed. To even hear her say such words meant the world to me,” he said.

Amidst rumours that Nayanthara has produced the film, it has emerged that her long-time friend K. Rajesh has bankrolled the project. The film has music by Ghibran and also features a host of supporting cast.

For the uninitiated, Gopi Nainar was embroiled in a controversy over the release of A.R Murugadoss’s Kaththi. He had claimed that it’s his story that Murugadoss tweaked and made into a film with Vijay. While Murugadoss denied all charges and even claimed to have not known Gopi, the controversy earned a lot of media spotlight.

At the press meet, Gopi also said: “The media made me what I’m today. I owe my career to them and to Nayanthara madam. Had they not supported me, I don’t know what I would have done.”
