Arya’s Career

Arya was approached by filmmaker Jeeva in 2003 while working as an assistant software developer to audition for his film Ullam Ketkumae. The two had previously shared a neighborhood. Jeeva gave Arya the stage name when she agreed to work on the project. The movie was pushed back. As a result, Arya made his screen debut as Kutty in Arinthum Ariyamalum by Vishnuvardhan.


Arya's First Movie: Arinthum Ariyamalum (2005)

Vishnuvardhan wrote and directed the 2005 Tamil-language crime action movie Arinthum Ariyamalum. Adithya, Sangili Murugan, Krishna, and Yog Japee also have significant roles in the film, in addition to actors Navdeep, Prakash Raj, and newcomers Arya and Sameksha. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the music for the movie. The movie was made by Punnagai Poo Geetha, an RJ at THR Raaga in Malaysia. The movie opened in theatres on May 20, 2005. It finished a 175-day box office run. Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut - South for Arya was eventually given to the movie. The movie was made available on Blu-ray in the UK in 2015.


Naan Kadavul (2009)

Bala co-wrote and directed Naan Kadavul, an arthouse action movie in Tamil that was released in 2009. The movie is based on Jeyamohan's Yezhaam Ulagam, a Tamil novel for which he also wrote the dialogue. Arya and Pooja appear in the movie.

Background music and the soundtrack for the movie, which was produced by K. S. Sreenivasan and co-distributed by Vasan Visual Ventures and Pyramid Saimira, were written by Ilaiyaraaja. Suresh Urs handled the editing, and Arthur A. Wilson handled the cinematography. The movie, which had been in production for more than three years, was ultimately shown on February 6, 2009. The movie garnered positive reviews after its release and was recognized with two National Film Awards, including the Best Director Award for Bala, four Vijay Awards, three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards, and two Filmfare Awards. Additionally, it was screened at film festivals like the 2011 Beloit International Film Festival and the 2010 Fantastic Fest. 


Avan Ivan (2011)

Avan Ivan is a 2011 Indian comedy-drama film in the Tamil language that was written and directed by Bala. This is Bala's fifth full-length film to bear his name. Vishal and Arya play the lead characters in the movie; other cast members include G. M. Kumar, R. K., Madhu Shalini, Janani Iyer, and Ambika. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the soundtrack for the Kalpathi S. Agoram-produced movie, which also has editing by Suresh Urs and cinematography by Arthur A. Wilson. Avan Ivan depicts the relationship between two boisterously playful half-brothers against the sceneries of Theni. Eros International reports that it did well at the box office.

Alongside Vishal, he played the lead character of Kumbedran Sami. Arya is a perfect foil for Vishal — his brash demeanour and genuine affection for his stepbrother come out well in many of the scenes — and he deserves appreciation for taking on a role that isn't as heroic as Vishal's and presenting it convincingly, according to The Hindu critic. The film debuted to mixed reviews, but the lead actors' performances won praise.


Raja Rani (2013)

Raja Rani, also known as The King and Queen, is a 2013 Indian Tamil-language romantic drama movie that was helmed by Atlee. Arya, Jai, Nayanthara, and Nazriya Nazim star in the AR Murugadoss-produced movie, which also has Sathyaraj, Santhanam, and Sathyan in supporting parts. The 1986 Tamil film Mouna Ragam and the 2007 Kannada film Milana served as major inspirations for the film's central plot.

On September 27, 2013, the movie was released, and it was well-received. It was recreated in Odia as Tu Je Sei in 2016 and in Bengali as Shudhu Tomari Jonyo in 2015.


Double Barrel (2015)

Lijo Jose Pellissery is the writer and director of the 2015 Indian Malayalam-language indie gangster spoof film Double Barrel, popularly known as Eratta Kuzhal. The movie, which is co-produced by Prithviraj Sukumaran, Santhosh Sivan, Arya, and Shaji Nadesan under the banner of August Cinema and Lijo Jose Pellissery under the banner of Amen Movie Monastery, stars Prithviraj Sukumaran, Indrajith Sukumaran, Arya, Chemban Vinod Jose, Sunny Wayne, Swathi Reddy, Isha Sharvani, Parvathi Menon Music was written by Prashant Pillai, and cinematography was handled by Abinandhan Ramanujam. The production of Double Barrel is thought to have cost 26 crore rupees ($3.3 million).

On September 20, 2019, the movie was seen in theatres, to mixed reviews from critics. In spite of this, it was financially successful, earning 100 crores at the box office. K. V.

Arya’s Controversies


Cheating Allegation Controversy

After pledging to marry a woman of Sri Lankan descent in Germany, Arya got himself into trouble and suffered from emotional stress after she accused him of defrauding her of 70 lakh euros. According to reports, Vidja has turned up a screenshot of her WhatsApp conversation with Arya and asserted that she had barred the publication of Arya's movies. Vidja made the complaint through a lawyer based in Germany, and the case was heard yesterday. The case was postponed to August 17 after the court reportedly instructed the police to gather further data following the hearing. Surprisingly, neither Arya nor his group has argued against the actor's case.

The Central Crime Branch (CCB) of the Chennai City police apparently became convinced that it appeared to be the work of someone impersonating the actor after questioning him. Although the actor is said to have been outraged, a close friend warned the media that celebrities are frequently the target of blackmail. Every significant actor experiences it. Now it's Arya's turn. The reality is something we are aware of. Family and friends of Arya are unconcerned. Actor Arya exhaled in relief before disclosing the emotional agony the experience had caused him. He sent out a tweet expressing gratitude to the Chennai police and the cybercrime unit for apprehending the true cultist. It was a true mental trauma that I never spoke about. I'm grateful to everyone who supported me.
