Thenandal Studios Limited issue new statement on Sangamithra | Arya | Jayam Ravi
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 03:33 PM
A few years back, esteemed production house Thenandal Studios Limited announced a historical epic biggie titled Sangamithra under the direction of Sundar C. Jayam Ravi and Arya were announced as the leads of this project, with music composed by the legendary A.R.Rahman. The film was officially launched at the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival, garnering a wide attention. However, due to various reasons, the film did not take off as planned and the makers confirmed that the film is temporarily shelved. All the members associated with the film moved to their respective other commitments.
However, it looks like certain people have been involved in fraudulent activities and scam using the name of Sangamithra and this has irked the makers. Earlier today (January 12), a public caution notice was issued by Thenandal Studios Limited condemning the act of people who were involved in scams in the name of Sangamithra.
The official statement from TSL read, "It has come to our notice that certain persons claiming to be associated with the production of the Tamil feature film Sangamithra directed by Sundar C and produced by Thenandal Studios Limited are circulating fake messages and impersonating themselves to be the representatives of the production house and developing/creating platforms or technologies for the said film and collecting money in this behalf is completely illegal and we on behalf of the production company have not sourced any such funds or authorized anyone in this regard.
We hereby call upon and request all persons concerned not to entertain any such persons and do not fall prey to any such fraudulent activities and please note that we shall not be responsibile for any consequences arising out of such illegal activities". This being said, the fans are still hopeful of seeing Sangamithra being mounted as a project and let us hope that the d-day arrives soon. Find below the public caution notice issued by TSL here:

Vishal in a high-speed foot chase - ACTION-PACKED ENEMY SNEAK PEEK | Arya | Anand Shankar
Leading Tamil actors Vishal and Arya will be seen on the big screen once again after a decade in Enemy, which is hitting theatres as a grand Diwali treat on November 4. Billed to be an out-and-out action thriller, the upcoming film directed by Iru Mugan fame Anand Shankar under producer Vinod Kumar's Mini Studios banner has the two stars appearing in a full-length film after they last worked together in National Award-winning director's Avan Ivan. With only five days remaining for the film to come out in theatres, promotions are in top gear after a raw and intense trailer came out a few days back following which the makers on Saturday unveiled a sneak peek video for Enemy showing Vishal involved in a high-speed chase on foot.
The Enemy sneak peek video starts off with Vishal and Karunakaran entering a pub and meeting a youth, whom they've been chasing for some time. Upon coming face to face, the youngster realises he's in trouble and makes a run for it on his bicycle in the hopes of evading Vishal and Karunakaran. However, Vishal isn't one to quit and puts up a chase as he sprints through the streets of a posh Malaysian shopping locality and tries to nab the individual. Vishal gets the upper hand as he manages to catch up with the person and nabs him before he can escape. Although the context behind the chase hasn't been revealed, we can believe the scene is pivotal and will be known when Enemy comes out next week.
The buzz surrounding Enemy has been high ever since it was announced that the film would be releasing for Diwali alongside 'Superstar' Rajinikanth's Annaatthe. Expectations for the film shot up after it was revealed that Vishal and Arya, who are best buddies in real life, are pitted against each other, with the former playing the hero and the latter cast as the antagonist. Enemy also has Super Deluxe fame Mirnalini Ravi playing the female lead, while National Award winners Prakash Raj and Thambi Ramaiah, including Malayalam actress and filmmaker Mamta Mohandas will be appearing in pivotal roles. The film has music by composer S. Thaman and background score done by Sam C. S, while the technical crew features cinematographer RD Rajasekar, editor Raymond Derrick Crasta, art director T Ramalingam and Ravi Verma for the stunts.

Bigg Boss Malayalam fame Arya gets emotional talking about fighting heartbreak - VIRAL STATEMENT!
Popular Malayalam actress Arya Rohit, who has made appearances in Mohanlal's Lailaa O Lailaa, Jayasurya's Punyalan Private Limited and Mammootty's Ganagandharvan to name a notable few, is known among fans for being vocal on social media about her personal life. Having spoken about her love for her daughter Roya and also about her relationships in the past, Arya, who first started out as an anchor on television, also appeared as one of the contestants on Bigg Boss Malayalam season 2 in 2020. Arya, who recently turned 30, posted an emotional note about fighting heartbreak last year, while also sharing photos from her cake cutting celebration with her family and friends.
Taking to Instagram, Arya posted a detailed note, which is as follows:
Arya wrote, "Last year on this very same day I was going through a very bad phase of my life.. I never knew depression could hit me so badly. The kind of emotions I was going through is way too hard to even explain. Locked up in an apartment in UAE all alone, to get through the rest of the day, I had no other choice but to depend on a bottle of wine and some leftover food to survive the day… But yes I was thrown aboard, my situation went bad, I might have done something bad also. But somehow I survived. Thanks to that person who sensed something wrong by evening and decided to come to me. So this was my last birthday, the day I turned 30 yrs old!!! But today when I look back , it would have been so different if I had made the right choice. I could have been with my beautiful daughter and my wonderful family and friends and could have had the happiest birthday but then NO. I was stupid enough to travel all the way to UAE and spend my birthday with someone who was least interested in me anymore. It was my bloody mistake that I made the wrong choice. Nobody to blame that for."
Stating that she has moved on, Arya added, "Look at me today. I turned 31 today and I have the most amazing smile on my face and my heart is filled with so much of love, peace and gratitude. It’s ok to have few toxic people in your life at least at some point coz then only you will realize who the real ones are. I mean the ones who genuinely love you , care for you. All I am trying to say is.. it’s all in your hands…. Whether to be happy or to destroy your inner peace… it’s all in your hands . Choice is yours … whether to be happy or to break your own heart. Always remember… your happiness is in your hands… keep reminding yourself to choose wisely always. Choose the people who love you unconditionally and who always are there with you. I am so so so happy today… my 31 st birthday was undoubtedly the best one I could ever have… Even though I missed a few of my people I am overwhelmed and happy and most importantly at peace…. A huge thank you and loads of love to my darling family .. friends like family for always always always being there and for being my reason for happiness. Thank you."

Two men who impersonated actor Arya and cheated a woman, arrested - Breaking Development!
By Galatta | 12:00 PM
Leading Tamil actor Arya has been engulfed in a controversy over the past few months after shocking allegations were made against him by a German-based Sri Lankan woman named Vidja after which he appeared before the Chennai city police's Cyber Crime wing a few days back. She had claimed that Arya had given her assurances of marrying her, including alleging that he had cheated her of Rs. 70 lakh. In her complaint, she mentioned that she questioned the actor after his marriage to actress Sayyeshaa in 2019, who told her that he would divorce her after the debts were cleared. Producing the chats supposedly with Arya as evidence to the Chennai city cybercrime, a probe was then launched.
The case has now witnessed significant development. During their investigation, the police discovered that two other persons were chatting with Vidja impersonating Arya. The police found that the two persons - Mohammed Armaan and Mohammed Hussaini - from the Pulainthope area in Chennai had impersonated the actor and cheated Vidja of the amount, while also putting her through immense mental stress over a period of two years. The police have since arrested the duo and legal proceedings have also been initiated. This arrest has now come as a relief for actor Arya who is now cleared off the topic.
In that light, Arya thanked the Tamil Nadu Police for their swift action through his latest tweet. He also mentioned that the last few days have caused him mental trauma. Arya's tweet read, "I would like to thank Commissioner of Police @chennaipolice_ Additional Commissioner of Police-Central Crime Branch and Cyber Crime Team of Chennai city for arresting the Real culprit. It was a real mental trauma which I never expressed. Love to everyone who believed in me".
On the professional front, Arya is riding high on the massive success of Sarpatta Parambarai which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Up next, he has films like Enemy and Aranmanai 3 lined up for release.
