Director Pa Ranjith, who made his directorial debut with Attakathi starring Dinesh, is currently busy directing Salpetta, starring Arya in the lead. The movie’s story is based on north Madras boxers of the 80s and Arya and Kalaiyarasan play boxers in the movie. Reports suggest that actress Dushara Vijayan, who made her debut in Tamil with Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari, has been roped in to play the female lead. Though many actresses auditioned for the role, apparently, Ranjith felt that Dushara would fit the role. Santhosh Prathap, who acted in Parthiban’s Kathai Thirai Kadhai Vasanam, will be seen playing a pivotal role in the film.The shoot of the film was about to begin in May but due to the corona-induced lockdown, the shoot did not start.
For the film, both the actors have beefed up their physique. Arya’s beefed-up look for the film has already created a lot of expectations among Ranjith’s fans. Now, its director Pa Ranjith himself posted a photo on Instagram, practicing boxing, and his boxer avatar has gone viral.
