I’m Very Happy With Mani Ratnam’s ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’ : Arun Vijay


Actor Arun Vijay, who is all set to play the character Thyagu in Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film ‘Chekka Chivantha Vaanam’, is all excited about his first release in 2018. Having starred in ‘Kuttram 23’ the last time, which released in March last year, Arun confesses that starring in this multi-starrer is surely something to look forward to.

Opening up about his character, he says:

“Thyagu has two shades in him. There’s a lot of emotion and transition in him, and it’s a very challenging role and I had to make the full use of it. He is a classy guy, in Dubai, a businessman, and deals with all the Arabs there. He’s a sweet talker so this role is totally a different zone for me. The character also gets a transition after a point.”

Contrary to what the trailer shows, turns out no one is truly good or truly bad in the film. “Everyone’s got a good shade as well as a dark shade. Nothing is 100 per cent, and at the same time, there’s that one side that is triggered out only coming when the situation arises,” he reveals.

Paired with actress Aishwarya Rajesh, the actor also spoke of his co-star. “She plays a Sri Lankan woman, and does a wonderful job in it,” he says.

Usually, when it comes to starring in films, most actors are wary about starring in a multi-starrer. Arun Vijay, on the hand, suggests otherwise.

“I’m very happy because if it was another director, then I might have had a second thought. But Mani sir never lets his characters go to waste. He does a very good job of showing them in their zone and portray them exactly that way.”

Speaking of action films, Arun, who has played villains and heroes equally, says it doesn’t matter what his role is as long as the content works well. The actor has a slew of other films in the pipeline including Saaho with Prabhas, Thadam with Magizh Thirumeni, and another one that he will announce soon.
