Arulnithi Tamilarasu has carved a niche for himself over the years as a seasoned performer having appeared in praiseworthy roles in several films. Having impressed fans in films like Mouna Guru, Demonte Colony, Aarathu Sinam, Brindhavanam and Iravukku Aayiram Kangal to name a notable few, Arulnithi, who made his acting debut over a decade back, was last seen in Kalathil Santhippom alongside Jiiva, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Manjima Mohan, earlier this year. Currently attached to a political satire film under Karu Palaniappan's direction, Arulnithi, who will be seen next in Diary, made two new film announcements on Wednesday on the occasion of his birthday among which one is Dejavu and the other has been titled D Block

Arulnithi's D Block will be directed by popular Tamil YouTuber Vijay Kumar Rajendran (of Eruma Saani fame) and produced by cinematographer Aravinnd Singh's MNM Films, with the film's first look being released to announce the project. Initially called as Arulnithi 15, the upcoming Tamil film has been revealed to be a college-based script, with the sequences set to be filmed within the premises of a college. D Block is inspired by a real life story and Arulnithi will be seen playing the role of a college student for which he has reportedly shed a few kilos. 

The D Block first look poster was shared by blockbuster director Pandiraj who tweeted, "#DBlock #DBlockFirstLook.
