Actor Arav, of Bigg Boss Tamil fame, will reportedly play lead in his next film titled Market RajaMBBS. It is directed by Saran who has worked on Ajith’s Kadhal Mannan, Amarkalam, Attagasam and others. The title of the film is a play on the title of Kamal Haasan’s popular Vasool Raja MBBS.
According to a report in Times of India, Market Raja MBBS is an action-comedy and fantasy film, and is said to be different from Kamal’s Vasool Raja MBBS. Director Saran told ToI, “This title was actually the initial title of Vasool Raja MBBS. I got a subject that could suit the title, and decided to go with it. I haven’t attempted fantasy so far, so it’s going to be new for both the audiences and me.”
It is said that Arav’s titular character is a railway contractor and a local don, and the film’s story is set in Perambur. The director said he needed a popular face with a ‘macho’ look, so he offered the role to Aarav.
The film also stars actress Kavya Thapar, who has made her debut in a Tollywood film. The director recently announced that Maanu from Kadhal Mannan will be a part of the cast.
The latest update on this film is that the team is currently shooting at Aachi Manorama’s house in T Nagar. It must be noted that this is director Saran’s 15th film, and more importantly actor Chaams’ 150th film.
