Arya has been riding high after the fantastic opening of Vettai. He has been working with director Selvaraghavan for Irandam Ulagam opposite Anushka and the first schedule is complete in Ramoji Film city, Hyderabad.
Apparently rumours are rife that the actor has been signed up to play a parallel role in his mentor Vishnuvardhan’s new film with Ajith.
The film is produced by AM Ratnam under his Sri Surya Movies and is supposed to go on floors by end of February.
Speculation is rife in the media about the other character signed up for the movie with some media reports claiming Vishnuvardhan’s brother Krishna is the front runner.
But now Arya has emerged as the favourite, which will truly make it a multi-starrer.
But sources close to Arya deny it and say that Vishnu had given him a narrative and he was very excited about doing a film with Thala.
However, the actor has given continuous bulk date to Selvaraghavan for Irandam Ulagam and will not be in a position to dole out dates for the Ajith project.
