Popular Tamil actor Arya is gearing up to set his foot into the digital space with Tamil horror series The Village. Touted to be India’s first web series to be adapted from a graphic novel, The Village is directed by Milind Rau. It is set at streaming platform Amazon Prime Video.
In addition to Arya, the upcoming series also features Aazhiya, Aadukalam Naren, Divya Pillai, Thalaivasal Vijay, Muthukumar, Kalai Raani, George M, John Kokken, Arjun Chidambaram, Pooja, Jayaprakash, and P N Sunny on the cast.
Last year, Arya had said that he was looking forward to his series debut with Amazon Prime Video, after the success of his film Sarpatta Parambarai on the platform.
“The kind of response I got for Sarpatta Parambarai is amazing and The Village is my (series) debut. It is unlike any other show that you see in India... We had a great time working on it. We have worked very hard and it was challenging to shoot. We are very excited about this project,” the actor said at the Prime Video Presents India event held on Thursday in Mumbai.
Rau, Deepthi Govindarajan and Deeraj Vaidy have adapted The Village for screen. The project has been bankrolled under the banner of Studio Shakthi Creative.
