Hari’s hand-written statement has been going viral on social media lately, and the director has been receiving wide appreciation from both the netizens and industry members for his great decision. Recently, popular actors Vijay Antony and Harish Kalyan have also decided to take pay cuts for their upcoming projects.
Aruvaa, which marks Suriya’s sixth collaboration with director Hari, is said to be a mass family entertainer that is set in a rural backdrop. If the reports are to be believed, the movie, which primarily focuses on family sentiments, revolves around the relationship between the brothers. Suriya is said to be appearing in a unique get-up in the project.
Raashi Khanna, the popular actress has been roped in to appear as one of the two female leads in Aruvaa. The project thus marks Raashi’s first collaboration with both Suriya and director Hari. As per the reports, the makers are yet to finalise the other leading lady of the project.
Aruvaa will feature Vadivelu, the senior comedian in a pivotal role. The rest of the star cast of the project is expected to be revealed very soon. D Imman, the renowned musician has been roped in to compose the songs and background score. The Suriya starrer is produced by the banner Studio Green.
