‘Aari’ is a Tamil actor who has the look of a next door boy. He has a strong background in theatre (Magic Lantern, Theatre Nisha and Inland Theatres) that has helped him with his acting skills. He got to act alongside veterans like Shankar, K. Balachander and Bharathiraja in a short span of his career, which is indeed a remarkable feat for this young actor. For N. Krishna's third flick, titled ‘Nedunchaalai’ (meaning ‘ Highway Click to look into! >> Read More... Highway ’), to portray the character, Aari had lost ten kgs, and the project was shot entirely for two years before getting completed.

Despite having the rugged look, Aari was not very impressive as the outlaw Murugan. Nevertheless, the film received rave reviews as it had sketched the lives of those people who depend on a highway for their livelihood. In his next movie, ‘ Dharani Click to look into! >> Read More... Dharani ’, the actor got much better reviews. In the film ‘Dharani’, he bagged the role that has two looks.

For one character, he sported a lean clean-shaven look, and for the other, he had turned out like a ruffian. Aari could not have asked for a better scope than this. The film is directed by Guhan (who was earlier an assistant director to Ram Gopal Varma Ram Gopal Varma is a famed Indian film director an >> Read More... Ram Gopal Varma ). Looking back at his career graph, he was the ultimate choice for director Shankar, who gave him the opportunity to debut in his film, ‘Rettaisuzhi’ (2010).

In 2015, audiences like him for playing a stellar role in ‘ Maya Click to look into! >> Read More... Maya ’, a supernatural movie, which had Nayantara in the title role, whereas Aari plays the role of a sketching artist. His acting caught the attention of both critics and the viewers, alike. The actor is a bit choosy in selecting good scripts, and wants to know the character which he is going to portray in detail, His forthcoming releases that are awaited by the audience are ‘Kadai Enn 6’, and ‘Maane Thaene Paeye’. He was born on April 2, 1982, in Palani.
