Produced by AGS Entertainment and directed by Jayam Raja, Thani Oruvan stars Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara in lead roles. Speculations are running thick and fast that Arya will play the villain role and take on Jayam Ravi. The team has already completed 50% of shooting in Hyderabad, Dehradun, Bengaluru and other cities. The shooting is currently taking place in Chennai.
When quizzed about Arya’s role, “Nothing has been confirmed yet. We are still shooting the other portions of the film. Also, the villain’s role will be played by a prominent hero in the industry, whom we are yet to finalise. But it’s not Arya as of now,” says Jayam Raja. The film is an action thriller and has a theme that reflects social problems. It’s not cliched, says Raja.
