As known already, director Pa. Ranjith's next film will feature Arya in the lead role as a boxer for which he has undergone extensive and intense physical training ever since the project went on floors earlier this year. Being produced under the K9 Studios banner, the film tentatively titled Arya 30 for now, is speculated to be titled for a while now as Salpetta. The first schedule for the film had been wrapped up prior to the nationwide lockdown was imposed, with Arya now taking to his Twitter page to release a video featuring actor and co-star Kalaiyarasan training for his role in the project that is touted to be a boxing-based political sports drama. 

In the video, Arya has captioned that production has resumed on the film, while also showing Kalaiyarasan doing weight training, including aerobics and boxing alongside a trainer, while declaring towards the end to director Pa. Ranjith that he is ready for his role in the project. The actor had during a Facebook live interaction with Galatta Media in June said that the team was set to begin the second schedule when the lockdown was imposed. Check out the video shared by Arya featuring Kalaiyarasan training for the film below:

Apart from Arya and Kalaiyarasan, Arya 30 or Salpetta will also include Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari actress Dushara Vijayan playing the female lead, with Santhosh Prathap in a supporting role. Speaking about her role in the film, Dushara had a while back said that she was called in for an audition after the team had come across her picture on Twitter. She had then done two look tests for her character in the film. She stated that she plays a North Madras girl and got the role only after she cleared the audition. The film also has music scored by Santhosh Narayanan, while Murali. G is handling the cinematography and National Award-winning stunt duo, Anbariv, are taking care of the action sequences.

There has been quite a lot of hype surrounding Arya 30/Salpetta considering Pa. Ranjith is returning to direction after a two-year gap since his Kaala starring Rajinikanth. A lot is riding on the film for the fiery filmmaker who has conveyed sensitive issues through his films, with fans expecting his upcoming feature too to be another ripper.
