Arya and Shakti

It was only a few days ago that producer Gnanavel Raja gifted a swanky SUV to director Shakti Soundar Rajan as the former was pleased with the success of Teddy which had Arya in the lead. The film, which was liked by young audience, had a premiere on Disney+ Hotstar earlier this year. 

Shakti had posted a picture of the car on his Twitter handle and thanked Gnanavel for the surprise gift. The movie was Arya's first OTT release this year, followed by Sarpatta Parambarai, which started streaming on Amazon Prime Video from July.

Now, it is heard that both Arya and Shakti are set to team up again for another movie, the shooting of which is expected to commence soon. According to a report in Behindwoods, the movie is likely to be a science-fiction thriller. Every film of Shakti has been different with regard to their genres. 

His debut flick Naanayam was a heist thriller while Naaigal Jaakirathai, which he made after a four-year hiatus, was a feel-good movie. His next project, Miruthan starring Jayam Ravi in the lead, was the first zombie movie in Tamil, and it received praise for the attempt. Tik Tik Tik, in which he joined hands again with Ravi, was a space thriller.   

Teddy was also an experimental film as it had a teddy bear playing a pivotal role for the first time in Tamil. The movie's VFX was appreciated by critics and audience alike. Imman's music was another aspect of the movie which was lauded by film lovers. 

Meanwhile, Arya, whose last outing was the theatrical release Aranmanai 3, is gearing up for the release of Enemy which will hit the screens on Deepavali. Tipped as a high-octane action thriller, the movie will take on Rajinikanth's Annaatthe at the box office.
