Director Shakti Soundar Rajan's last film Teddy was released directly on ADisney+Hotstar. The film starred Arya and Sayyeshaa in lead roles. After the film's stupendous success, the duo is back for another film. Tentatively titled Arya 33, the film will be produced by Arya's The Show People in association with Think Studios. The film also features Simran, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Thyagarajan, Harish Uthaman, Bharath Raj in lead roles.
In a statement, director Shankar Soundar Rajan said, "After a prolonged phase of lockdown, it’s great to see the movie industry is back with high-level energy and enthusiasms as the production of many movies is happening in full swing. Significantly, it’s a great delight to experience a great welcome from my producer-actor Arya, who came forward showing interest to produce this film. I thank him and the producers of Think Studios for believing that this movie will get ticked among all categories of audiences. I have always believed that Arya is the rarest pearl of the movie industry. Not all actors have the ability to mold themselves into the characters crafted by the directors. It has been evident from the list of 33 movies he has done so far including the last 3 movies – Teddy, Sarpatta Parambarai, and Aranmanai 3. This movie will be a special one in his career for his characterization would be far away from what he has done so far in his career.”
