Even though actor Arun Vijay has been around for over a decade, he reinvented his career with Gautham Menon Yennai Arindhaal, in which he played a grey-shaded character Victor.
With his last Tamil outing Kuttram 23 striking big at the box-office while impressing the critics, he has grabbed the attention of other southern industries as well.
He made his Kannada debut last year in a negative role with a bang. If the grapevine is anything to go by, Arun is said to have landed a key role in Prabhas’s multi-lingual action thriller, Saaho.
Arun is currently shooting for Tamil thriller Thadam, and he’s expected to join the sets of Saaho soon.
Being directed by Sujeeth, the film also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh as the main antagonist, and he had said that the film will be the biggest action fest in cinemas next year.
Talking to Mumbai Mirror, Neil had said, “Saaho is a larger-than-life film and, post Baahubali, the entire nation is rooting for Prabhas. And where there is a mega hero, there will always be a mega villain too. My character has many shades like every other character in the film. It’s quite an exciting project, Sujeeth has a great vision. Saaho will be the biggest action film of 2018.”
Tipped to be made on a budget of Rs. 150 crore in three languages, the film will be predominantly shot outside India in places such as Abu Dhabi and some key locations across Europe.
While Pooja Hegde is rumored to be playing the leading lady, well-known Bollywood star Chunky Pandey has been roped in to play a pivotal role.
