Perhaps, a long wait for the Bigg Boss season one champ Arav. The first look of his debut film ‘Raja Bheema’ has been revealed.
“This is what we were actually concerned from the beginning: about delivering an appropriate opener. I am exhilarated and at the same time feel tons of responsibilities thrust upon my shoulders to savor their expectations,” said Arav.
Raja Bheema – the title and the poster is a tale of relationship between a mahout and elephant. “Obviously, a poster with such composition would deliberately give such an impression. But the fact is that Raja Bheema will deviate itself widely from such routine illustrations. The film deals with animal trafficking done for the sake of supersitious belief, which has been a raving issue in many places. We have tried throwing up some lights upon this crisis, but in a much commercial treatment,” added Arav.
“Usually, the films with man-animal concepts would either set against the rural or forest backdrops, but this one will have its placement in semi-urban locales like Palakkad, Coimbatore and Pollachi.”
At the moment, Arav has completed shooting for one schedule in Palakkad and second one will commence shortly in Pollachi. Debut filmmaker Naresh Sampath is wielding megaphone for this film based on man-animal conflict, which is produced by Surabhi films S Mohan.
