Filmmaker Magizh Thirumeni says he will present Arya, known for doing romantic comedies, in a never seen before avatar in his upcoming Tamil action-thriller "Meegaamann".

After delivering back-to-back hits "Arrambama" and "Raja Rani", Arya has changed tracks with "Meegaamann".

"Arya didn't go through any startling transformation because the role didn't require that. But audiences will see an Arya they have not seen before. You'll see a more subtle and manly Arya," Magizh told IANS.

"I felt Arya would be an interesting actor to carry off the role. He may not have done an out-and-out action film, but he has done films that have utilised his potential. I felt I could give him an opportunity to attempt something he hasn't done so far in his career and after working with him I have realised that he's done justice to the role," he added.

Shooting "Meegaamann" was a fun experience for the director.

"Working with Arya was absolute fun. There was nothing fake about him. I should also thank my producer for creating an ambience that made working so much fun. We as a team shot for over 100 days and we maintained the same energy level till the end," said Magizh.

Produced by V. Hitesh Jhabak, "Meegaamann", which is currently in post-production stage, also features Hansika Motwani, Sudhanshu Pandey, Ashutosh Rana, Anupama Kumar and Harish Uthaman in important roles.

The filmmaker says "Meegaamann" is a "commercial" actioner narrated from a new perspective.

"It's a typical commercial action film, but what I've tried to do is reinterpret the formula used to make such films. I've taken some liberty by adding a refreshing new perspective. I've tried to keep it logical and realistic. In the hero entry scene, you wouldn't find 10 tractors flying in the air," he said.

"Meegaamann" is Magizh's first film after underrated Tamil action-thriller "Thadaiyara Thaakka".

"'Thadaiyara Thaakka' needed a popular actor to get noticed. But I don't regret it because Arun did a fabulous job. The film was ahead of its time and I feel 10 or 15 years from now, the younger generation will see it as an Arun Vijay film," he said.

"In terms of learning, I feel if you're able to get the dates of a top hero, everything becomes easier. After that you wouldn't have problems with the money flow and when there's money, there's a lot of creative freedom as well," Magizh said.

He insists presence of a bankable hero helps in getting maximum screens when a film releases.
