Catch Arav and Oviya on big screen soon

Bigg Boss fame Arav’s ‘Raja Bheema’ has completed shooting and post-production work has begun. Arav, the model turned actor signed up for this film immediately after emerging winner in the first season of Big Boss. Raja Bheema talks about man-animal conflict and has been shot in exotic locales amidst nature like Palakkad, Pollachi, and Thailand.

Talking about the film, director Naresh Sampath said, “It was really a huge process of shooting across different places, especially in the thick and dense forests. Well, certain things look nice when planned on papers, but to experience something unexpected on the shooting spot is a really big hurdle to cross.” One of the hurdles that the director was talking about was when Arav was tossed by an elephant!

Talking about the incident, the director said, “It was especially difficult for Arav who was tossed by an elephant. Although he had befriended it prior to the shooting, this was completely unexpected. The slippery rocks and grounds were yet another hurdle that we had to come across during the shooting in forests. However, we are now finally happy that the entire shooting has been wrapped up.”

Produced by S Mohan, Raja Bheema has Ashima Narwal as the female lead. Oviya has done a small cameo as well, which includes shaking legs with Arav. Producer Mohan says, “We are now instantly working on post-production work phase and are planning for a summer release.”
