Arvind Swami's upcoming film Pulanaivu drops its first look on the star's birthday
The title of Arvind Swami's next film was announced by music director Anirudh.
When the Tamil cinema audiences were bombarded with moustached tough looking heroes, Arvind Swami came as a fresh whiff of air with his suave, debonair and urban countenance. Although technically his debut was in Mani Ratnam’s Thalapathy in a significant supporting role that also featured the stalwarts Rajinikanth and Mammootty, his role as cryptologist Rishikumar in the director’s Roja swivelled the spotlight totally on to him. Today, the handsome actor celebrates his 49th birthday!
In a career spanning almost close to three decades, the actor has worked extensively in Tamil, three films in Hindi and a film each in Malayalam and Telugu. When artists consider it an accomplishment of life to be just cast in a Mani Ratnam film, here is Arvind Swami who was seen in the ace director’s five films in lead roles and a cameo in one. The actor is known for trying out various roles. He had taken a sabbatical of sorts since 2000 when he met with an accident. Then later, again, it was in a Mani Ratnam’s film Kadal that the actor made his comeback in a significant role.
In his second innings, if one may call like that, Arvind Swami has done interesting characters in films such as Thani Oruvan where he played the role of a menacing antagonist. This film completely changed the way the industry and the audiences were looking at the actor. His character name Siddharth Abimanyu became widely known, thanks to his performance and director Mohan Raja’s writing. Lakshman’s Bogan also saw the actor essaying a different kind of character, again a negative shade. Right now Arvind Swami has Sathuranga Vettai 2, Vanangamudi, Naragasooran and Kallapart which are waiting for their release. Today, on account of his birthday, the title of his next film with director Santhosh Prathap was announced as Pulanaivu by music director Anirudh which basically means investigative research. Wishing the handsome actor a very happy birthday and success in all his endeavours!Read More
