Aarav rose to fame after winning the title of Bigg Boss Tamil Season 1, hosted by Kamal Haasan. Despite several failed attempts, Aarav kept trying his luck in cinema. He landed the antagonist role in Udhayanidhi Stalin's Kalaga Thalaivan, which is running successfully in the theatres.
In a statement, Aarav wrote, "Dreams come true!! As a hopeful actor, the silver screen was one thing I looked upon as a destination of dreamland. I desired that one day, I would get a role that will be applauded and appreciated by everyone in the cinema halls. The journey started with dreams that took me through the paths of relentless efforts, dreams, and disappointments. But hope and firm faith kept pushing me. More than all, the appreciation from the press, media, friends, family, and fans for every small step of mine instilled energy and enthusiasm. And now, I am overwhelmed with the response to my role Arjun in Kalaga Thalaivan. I thank Udhayanidhi Stalin sir for giving me this great opportunity. It's a rare scenario, where a lead hero gives so much screen space for a co-star. It's such a blessing to be working on this project alongside him. I thank director Magizh Thirumeni sir for choosing me for this role. The belief he had in me was immense, and I owe a lot for his confidence in me. I thank the entire team of Kalaga Thalaivan for supporting me. The press and media fraternity has always been my backbone. It's been an emotional flee to see them spreading the positive word of appreciation for my performance. The fans have never missed showering their unconditional love for my small roles in the movie, Bigg Boss show, and now for my new avatar as Arjun. Such positive vibes have generated more energy and responsibility to move forward and entertain them with my best effort."
