Mahima Nambiar, who was seen playing the role of Arnav Vijay's mother in Oh My Dog, has referred to Aarnav as a thoughtful and quite a sensible child. Speaking to IANS, Mahima added, Arnav is equally well mannered.
"While shooting for Oh My Dog, one day, he happened to get sweets. He shared it with everyone on the sets and by the time he wanted to give me one, he ran out of them. I asked him playfully for my sweet but he did not have one to offer. He felt bad. By afternoon, he went around the shooting spot, collecting flowers. Using those flowers, he cutely made a bouquet and gave it to me in the afternoon with an apology. The next day, the first thing he did was get me a sweet,” Mahima grins.
Mahima Nambiar also penned a post about Arnav, who happens to be the son of Arun Vijay. She wrote on Instagram, "This little boy Aarnav... I have known this adorable child since my 'Kuttram 23' days (then a small baby). It feels so nice to see you grow up into this talented and hardworking boy. I feel proud that you've given such an amazing performance in your debut movie. You and Simba made it seem like the roles were written for you. The unconditional love between you and the dog was a treat for the eyes and I'm sure the audience must be mesmerised by your performance!”
Mahima added she would always cherish her experience of working with Arnav in Oh My Dog. “Arnav has done an incredible job and deserves every bit of the accolade that comes his way.”
Further, Mahima said, “It was an absolute pleasure collaborating with 2D Entertainment, Rajsekar Pandian, director Sarov Shanmugam, Arun Vijay, Aarathi Arun, Dr Vinothinipandian and the entire team of Oh My Dog.”
Expressing gratitude for the love that is being showered on his son Arnav, Arun Vijay took to Twitter, saying, “Heartfelt thanks to each and everyone for all your wishes and appreciation for Arnav in Oh My Dog. He is blessed to have won so many hearts in his first film itself. He put in so much effort and was sincere in what he was doing at his age. As an actor and a dad, I am proud of him! Forever humbled!”
Oh My Dog, which revolves around the bond a kid shares with a blind dog, premiered on April 21, on Amazon Prime Video. The film is produced by Jyotika-Suriya's 2D Entertainment.
