Actor Jiiva and Arya are known to good friends off screen. They are all set to take their bromance to a new level as they gear up to work together for a yet-untitled Tamil project, to be helmed by Jeeva Shankar, whose last film Yaman with Vijay Antony was a successful venture.
Apparently, it was Arya who convinced Jiiva and brought him on board as the story has scope for another popular actor. The team had a few options in mind but Arya was hellbent on having Jiiva on board and he succeeded in the endeavour.
A source said that the project will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions and that Arya and Jiiva are indeed part of the film. The pre-production is already underway and the film is tipped to be a romantic-comedy and will feature two heroines who are yet to be finalised. The buzz is that Arya and Jiiva will be pitted against each other and the scenes between them will be high on comedy. Ghibran is most likely to come on board as the composer while the rest of the technical crew is in the process of being locked.
This year, Arya also has Sanghamitra, another multi-starrer in which he shares screen space with Jayam Ravi. Last seen in Kadamban, the Boss Engira Bhaskaran star is desperate for a hit and he is pinning high hopes on these two projects.
