The teaser of Arya’s upcoming Tamil thriller Teddy was unveiled on Tuesday. Going by the visuals, the film promises to be interesting as it features a talking teddy bear.

The teaser opens by introducing filmmaker Magizh Thirumeni, who plays the antagonist. He’s seen talking about the importance of time in their work. We get a quick shot of Arya in a couple of action sequences. This is followed by the introduction of the talking teddy bear.

In an interview, director Shakti Soundar Rajan had said, “The teddy bear is the second most important character in the movie. It has been completely created using CGI, and we have made it perform and fight. I think this itself makes the film a new attempt.”

Incidentally, Hollywood comedy film Ted, directed by Seth MacFarlane, also features a teddy bear playing a pivotal role in the protagonist's life.

The Tamil thriller, which was shot extensively in Azerbaijan, stars real-life couple, Arya and Sayyeshaa, in lead roles. Sakshi Aggarwal and Karunakaran also play key roles in the film.

Produced by Studio Green, Teddy is likely to be released in theatres this summer.

Meanwhile, Arya is currently shooting for Pa Ranjith’s yet-untitled boxing-based film. The film is Arya’s maiden collaboration with Ranjith, best known for helming films such as Kabali and Kaala. The actor has shed a lot of weight to achieve his ripped look. He will be seen playing a boxer from north Chennai in the movie, which will shine the spotlight on boxing clubs in the area. 

Apparently, Ranjith had originally planned this movie with Suriya. For reasons unknown, the plan didn’t materialize and so he went ahead and roped in Arya, who is one of the fittest actors in Tamil cinema.
