Irudhi Suttru has a had a great week. Although appreciations have poured infrom all corners – media, friends, family and public alike for our films Irudhi Suttru & Saala Khadoos, what has deeply moved me is the public support to fight the menace of piracy. I have received numerous calls, messages on phone and social media vouching to fight this cause with weblinks to be taken down and point of sale of pirated DVD's. Not just friends are sending me the links but complete strangers. I am thankful to all of you. On behalf of all of us, I am formally lodging a complaint with the Commissioner of Police, Chennai to take the necessary action against these offenders. It's a menace that kills the drive to make cinema of any kind both for the director and the producer.
Franchisees are the order of the day in the film industry. A proven film is bound to have its sequel. Of the many films that was released last year, Darling was one of major hits. The significance of this success is that it was pitted against a film that was branded as the most expensive film ever made at that point of time. K E Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green was the architect behind the success story of this horror flick. The success story is all set to be rewritten by Studio green, ever envied for the planning and execution with Darling 2, earlier titled 'Jinn'. "Sequels need not necessarily be the film with the same cast or script, the genre is good enough to hold the brand value. Darling 2 is directed by debutante Sathish Chandrasekaran. This story is plotted around five friends who go for an outstation trip with a haunted friend. This idea sounded good and exciting to me. The humour that is strewn all around the horror based script assures the success. The amalgamation of talents such as Kalai of Madras, Kali Venkat, Arjun, Munishkanth, 'Madras' Jhonny and not to forget newcomers Rameez Raja and Maya, this film has plenty to offer. The title change was discussed and without any hesitation it was accepted. I am sure this film also will be a 'Darling' for the masses. We are planning to release the film by early next month" says K E Gnanavel Raja. The music that was launched couple of days back has invoked a huge response. The soft-spoken Director Sathish Chandrasekaran reserved heaps of praises for the Music Director Radhan. "the basic concept for the making of the song 'Ni Sa GaRe Sa' was born after hearing the song. The mood, the location, the costumes and similar factors were determined by the melody. The excitement of being associated with a great brand like Studio green will be the biggest gain as far as we are concerned. We are confident enough to declare that Darling 2 will be a perfect sequel to Darling", concluded Director Sathish Chandrasekaran.

Arunthathi who marked a place for herself in Naigal Jagirathai is all set to prove her mettle in the action sequences in Arthanaari produced by A S Muthamizh for Kiruthikaa film creation and directed by Sundarra Elangovan who had earlier associated Director Bala. Arthanaari is an action based script, the story is based on the true life incident which inspired me a lot. I don the role of an undercover cop which is quite challenging to me. I underwent a complete make over for this project with lot of home work being done for my character. I was sent for a training under a cop for two weeks , I learnt how to hold a gun and trigger it too. I attended stunt classes and learnt different jump and kicks which was complicate too but that was a thrilling one to do. My Director was so particular that he wanted me to learn all that was required for my role be it stunt or dance. My director suggested few movies to watch as a reference for my character "The Blue Steel, The Bone Collector, and Mardhani. Trust me i accumulated lot of energy after watching these films. Now after watching 'Arthanaari' i could feel the same energy in me,such is the intensity of the script.I should thank my stars that i am lucky to get heroine oriented script in the beginning of my career. Before we could start the shot of Arthanaari i had couple of workshops for my character. Arthanaari is not the usual cop role, here the toughness is much more intensified than the other films.. I got injured during a stunt sequence in my ankle , it was intense pain no doubt but the pain vanished when accolades poured from the unit for the dare devil act.Right from my child hood i had been a great fan of Vijaya Shanthi madam, and i am sure 'Arthanaari' will give her plenty of pride as my idol' concluded Arunthathi.
