In a recent media interaction, Aruvi director Arun Prabhu Purushothaman said that people should not come to any conclusion by reading the synopsis in Wikipedia.
Arun said that movie buffs can watch both Asmaa and Aruvi to know about the similarities, the director also revealed that he saw the Egyptian film only after reading about the allegations on Twitter. Since both the film dealt with a woman protagonist affected by HIV disease, netizens spread the plagiarism charges against the director.
“Anyone who watched Asmaa and Aruvi would say that the two films are different”, said Arun Prabhu, who has been getting positive reviews from leading critics and on Tuesday, Superstar Rajinikanth himself congratulated the director for his brilliant effort.
Arun also clarified that his intention in Aruvi is to spread love and humanity. Meanwhile, audiences who missed Aruvi in theaters can watch it legally on Amazon from Pongal 2018.
