A few weeks before, it was officially announced that Arun Vijay will be teaming up with blockbuster director Hari for a new film and the announcement created a sensational buzz. It has now been revealed that the young and happening actress, Priya Bhavani Shankar will play the female lead. Notably, this Hari directorial will mark Priya’s second outing with Arun Vijay after Karthick Naren’s Mafia: Chapter One. Priya Bhavani Shankar has already acted in a rural film in the form of Karthi’s Kadai Kutty Singam and her performance received a positive response. Let us now see how she has fitted into a film made by director Hari who is known for his action-packed rural entertainers.

This addition gives a fresh flavour to the movie and we hope that the Mafia combination strikes big, this time. Interestingly, Priya Bhavani Shankar seems to be the hottest and most wanted heroine in the Tamil film industry. She was recently signed as the female lead for the Silambarasan TR - Gautham Karthik starrer Pathu Thala and Raghava Lawrence’s Pathu Thala and now, the latest addition is the Arun Vijay - Hari film. She is also awaiting the releases of movies like Kalathil Sandhippom, Kuruthi Aattam, and more.

Coming back to this project, the makers have tentatively called this film, #AV33, marking Arun Vijay’s 33rd outing. The fans are eagerly waiting to see Arun Vijay in a rural film as it has been quite a while since we saw him in such a setting. Off late, Arun Vijay’s most roles have been urban centric and stylish and through AV 33, we will probably be witnessing the new side of him. The shooting of the movie is expected to begin from next month and it is said that Arun Vijay has given a solid number of dates for this movie. According to what we heard from our sources, the Thadam actor will not move to any other project during the middle of this one and he has decided to focus only on this film during the entire shooting period.

This emotional family drama will be shot in Karaikudi, Ramnad, Tuticorin, and Chennai. More actors are expected to join the team in the coming days and we can expect further announcements soon. This film is produced by S Sakthivel and G Arun Kumar under the banner of Drumsticks Production. For now, check out the latest announcement about Priya Bhavani Shankar's addition here:
