Earlier this month, popular actor Arun, who rose to fame after playing one of the lead roles in the Sun TV serial, Poove Unakkaga, announced that he would be opting out of the serial. He did not disclose the reason for walking out of the serial but mentioned that he would be meeting the fans with very good news soon. Arun had posted, "I'd like to let you all know that I'm quitting Poove Unakkaga. Hereafter you can't see me as Kathir. I would like to lend my heartfelt thanks to my producer and to Sun TV for giving me this great opportunity, I wouldn't be who I am today without your support. And I also thank all my fans and friends for the constant love and support you all have been giving me. Don't worry guys. I'll meet you all soon with a good news. Thank you all once again and I always need your love and support. Endrum Ungal Anbudan, Arun".

Following his exit, the makers of Poove Unakkaga serial have now found an exciting replacement for him. Yes! The young and talented Azeem will be seen playing the lead role of Kathir, going forward. Azeem confirmed the news through his official Instagram page. Sharing a picture of him, Azeem wrote, "Hello My Dear Insta Fam 😍 Yes its True !! im Playing as the Lead in "POOVE UNAKKAGA " SUN TV (Mon - Sat) 8 pm From Today Onwards !!

For the unversed, Azeem got his major breakthrough after playing the character of Arjun in Vijay TV's super hit serial, Pagal Nilavu. Azeem was paired opposite Bigg Boss sensation Shivani Narayanan in the serial and the duo earned a good fan base. Azeem was even expected to take part in the fourth season of Bigg Boss Tamil as a wildcard contestant, but he couldn't take it up due to his personal commitments.
