Tamil star Arya basking in the staggering critical and mass acclaim of Sarpatta Parambarai has a lot to be happy about. Not only has the film fetched the 40-year-old actor the kind of praise he has never witnessed before, he was also blessed with a baby girl on July 23.
“That’s right,” Arya tells me happily. “It is a double celebrations at our home. The film has got far more acclaim than we ever expected. And just when we thought things couldn’t get better my wife and I were blessed with a baby girl just a few days ago.”
No name has been decided for the child. “It’s too early right now. The idea of fatherhood is yet to sink in.”
It seems Arya’s daughter has proven lucky for him? “That is right. Sarpatta Parambarai began streaming a day before my daughter was born. I have never seen so much praise for my film and performance before. I can’t wait for my daughter to see Sarpatta Parambarai some day in the future. I think she will be proud of me.”
Pa. Ranjith’s latest Tamil offering, Sarpatta Parambarai, brings to life the vibrant boxing culture in ‘70s North Madras. It is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
