"That's not true ... Arjun's films have a solid market in Kerala, Andhra and Karnataka, besides Tamil Nadu. So dubbing his films is always a viable proposition," says a unit member. Arjun and Reema Sen will be the lead pair of "Giri" their first film together. Ramya, the heroine of "Kuththu," is also part of the cast. Prakash Raj and Devyani have been roped in for character roles.
For the first time the action king's stunts and Sundar C.'s comedy will come together to provide ample entertainment for viewers, you are told. Arjun tries his hand at comedy with Vadivelu in tow in "Giri". As the film has no suitable role for her, Khushboo will stop with being producer.
