One film that has kept the excitement on a high level among fans is the upcoming Vishal and Arya starrer titled Enemy. Touted to be an intense action thriller, the upcoming film is a Mini Studios venture and is being directed by Anand Shankar of Arimba Nambi, Iru Mugan and NOTA fame and will see Vishal as the hero, with Arya cast in the role of a scheming villain. The on-screen collaboration of the two stars has raised the hype and expectations surrounding Enemy, with the makers on Thursday for the first time unveiling Arya's look. 

Mini Studios took to Twitter to release Arya's first look in Enemy, which has him depicted as a prisoner in the Changi Prison in Singapore. The Changi Prison has a big history as it was converted into a prisoner of war camp during World War II. The prison also contained the headquarters of the Japanese military police, known commonly as the Kempeitai, who were much feared at the time. Arya's look is the first glimpse of his character in Enemy and it will be interesting to see his backstory in the film and how he ended up in the high facility prison, including his face-off with Vishal, who too had a mass poster unveiled not long back to a rousing reception. 

An important leg of filming on Enemy was wrapped up sometime back at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, with Arya later sustaining an injury while shooting an action sequence at the EVP Film City on the outskirts of Chennai. The scene in Enemy featured both Arya and Vishal, who had shot for the sequence without any body doubles. Arya, who is known to be a physical actor, has often shown his commitment to the fullest in his earlier roles, including transforming himself by hitting the gym for the role of a North Madras boxer in his upcoming film, Sarpatta Parambarai, under Pa. Ranjith's direction.

Enemy is Vishal's 30th and Arya's 32nd film, with the cast also featuring names like Dubsmash and Tik Tok fame Mirnalini Ravi, who made an impressive debut on the big screen in acclaimed director Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Super Deluxe. She has been paired opposite Vishal in Enemy, with five-time National Award-winning veteran actor Prakash Raj also cast in a pivotal role. Enemy is also Mini Studios' ninth venture and their fourth consecutive film in Tamil. S. Thaman is scoring the music in the film, with RD Rajasekar handling the cinematography, Raymond Derrick Crasta for the editing, T Ramalingam for the art direction and Ravi Verma as the action director. Shan Karuppusamy and S Ramakrishnan are writing the film's dialogues, while the lyrics are penned by young sensation Arivu.
