News about Arivazhagan's Vallinam
has been scarce. That's because, the director has been keeping his cards close to his chest.
Arivazhagan's first film, Eeram
, the supernatural thriller, was a huge success at the box office. After that, he has been working on Vallinam
with actor Nakul, who is playing the lead role in the movie.
But then, the team has taken a break as Nakul has had to complete his earlier commitments. Arivazhagan said, "Nakul had to complete shooting for director KS Adhiyaman. So, we have just started the second schedule of shooting."
While actress Bindu Madhavi was to play the female lead initially, Arivazhagan said he will be introducing a new girl, Mridula. "She belongs to our state and can speak the language fluently as well."
According to the director, Vallinam
will be completely different from his first film. "While Eeram
was a supernatural thriller, Vallinam
is about sports and Nakul plays a basketball player. The story completely revolves in and around Chennai," he added.
While 30 per cent of the film is already over, Arivazhagan said the movie will be completed by March. Vallinam
is being produced by Aascar Films and Thaman has scored the music for the film. Nakul will start shooting for Naan Rajavaga Pogiren
