Last November, actor Arya announced on social media he was looking for a bride and went on to provide a mobile number for those interested to fill in the applications after a video of him in a gym surfaced online where he supposedly lamenting on not being able to get married.

Fast forward to four months and we now have a word from Arya himself, who was the center of attraction at the launch of the Colors Tamil TV channel today. Apparently, the whole thing was for a show titled Enga Veetu Mapillai, which will be telecast on the channel, which will go on air starting February 20.

During the channel’s launch today, dignitaries representing Colors Tamil stated around 7000 applications were received for the Mapillai Arya website with a majority of them being doctors. Furthermore, it was revealed that married women too had applied. Arya revealed he will choose a bride on a genuine basis from the 16 applicants selected and this is now just some other show in his life. 

The Enga Veetu Mapillai show will be telecast on weekdays Monday to Friday at 8:30PM. We will now have to wait and see the lucky lady who impresses Arya the most.
