SR Prabhu, who is known for critically acclaimed films like Joker, Maya, Maanagaram and the recent Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru is getting ready for his next release 'Aruvi', which will hit the screens on December 15.

"Aruvi is a film which is very close to my heart. If you ask me to rank films which we produced, I would place Aruvi on top", said SR Prabhu.

"We only allocated tight budget to our director Arun, he had a huge pressure to finish the film with the minimum budget. The reason is that we don't want to set a bad example in the industry by delivering a good content only to burn our fingers. Thanks to the entire team for understanding the situation ", added the producer.

" Only while finalizing the release date, we came to know the pain which all small film producers are experiencing these days ", smiled Prabhu.

The film's director Arun called Balu Mahendra and KS Ravikumar as his gurus." Aruvi talks about humanity. How a normal girl affected by the globalization is the basic crux ", said the director.

The film has a lot of bold dialogues but censor board officials have suggested only a few mutes. Newcomer Aditi Balan plays Aruvi in the film and she was one among the 500 actresses who came for audition.
