Arvind Swami and Arjun Sarja will be sharing the screen space in an upcoming untitled film that will be directed by NV Nirmal Kumar and bankrolled by Arjun’s Etcetera Entertainments.
Incidentally, the director had worked with Arvind Swami in Sathuranga Vettai 2 but the film is yet to see the light of the day.
Earlier, Arjun and Aravind Sami had teamed up for the Mani Ratnam directorial Kadal and this is their second venture together. It may be noted here that Arvind Swami took a break from the film industry and returned to the scene with Kadal in 2013.
Since then he has been bagging some very good roles. However, after the release of Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, a hit movie last year, Arvind Swami hasn’t had a release this year despite Sathuranga Vettai 2’s shooting being wrapped up a long time ago.
Reports are that the actor has refused to dub for the film as his payment is yet to be settled. Sources say that the film’s producer, Manobala could not settle the actor’s due as one of the distributors who had bought the theatrical rights of the film did not pay him yet.
While the fate of Sathuranga Vettai 2 is hanging on the balance, Arvind Swami has stopped acting in Kallapart even when the film makers have completed 80 percent of the shooting, we hear. Sources say that the actor is refusing to join the sets after coming to know the film’s producer is a defaulter and had not paid several actors and technicians in the past.
Sathuranga Vettai 2 is the sequel to the hit movie of the same name. The film has been directed by Nirmal Kumar and written by H Vinoth who had directed the prequel. In this film, Arvind Swami is paired opposite Trisha.
