Arun Prabu Purushothaman, who is a former assistant to popular directors Balu Mahendra and KS Ravikumar, is making his directorial debut with the film Aruvi. Recently, the film’s trailer was launched which showed a Hindu Goddess holding an AK47 in her hand. As soon as the trailer was released, it led to a huge stir and also created curiosity among people.
“You can’t classify Aruvi in a particular genre. It’s a socio-political adventure where Aditi Balan plays the titular role Aruvi and the film chronicles the incidents in her life. It’s about the social anguish from her perspective. One can say that it is the reflection of youth all over the globe. Though, people can relate it to the present-day happenings, the movie imparts a larger message for the humanity,” Arun said.
The movie was also premiered at Shanghai International Festival last year where it was well received. Talking about it, the director said, “We premiered it at the Shanghai International Festival last year. Although it had Chinese subtitles, I was very apprehensive as to how people would accept it. Much to my delight, they gave standing ovation and were discussing and debating about the film for about an hour. I was relieved that crossing the language barriers the film had reached good heights.”
