Tamil Rockerz is a project which garnered attention from movie buffs ever since its announcement, thanks to its peculiar title. The web series directed by Arivazhagan has been produced by leading production firm AVM Productions. Arun Vijay plays the lead in it while Vani Bhojan, Ishwarya Menon and Arivazhagan essay significant characters.
