Director Arun Prabhu Purushothaman made his debut with Aruvi, which introduced Aditi Balan to Tamil cinema. Aruvi went on to garner critical acclaim and commercial success. Sivakarthikeyan was so impressed with Arun Prabhu Purushothaman and hence gave him an opportunity to produce his second directorial venture titled Vaazhl. The film did exceptionally well in international film festivals and is all set to release on Sony Liv on July 16.
Co-producer Kalai of Sivakarthikeyan productions spoke about the film and what it has to offer. He said, "It’s been 3 years of a beautiful journey with Vaazhl. This is a movie that is so close to our hearts. The movie has been shot extensively across 175 locations. When director Arun Prabhu Purushothaman narrated the basic gist of Vaazhl, we instantly felt that it owns the huge potential to grab the audiences’ attention. The script demanded a huge production value and we didn’t want to compromise anywhere so that the beauty of this film isn’t lost. Besides, Vaazhl has a wonderful message that we believe will be liked by universal crowds. It was an amazing experience working with director Arun Prabhu. His ideas and the way of presenting the movie as promised have instilled more confidence in us that he will be one among the league of reigning filmmakers of our industry.”
