One actor who has never stopped growing as a creator is Siddharth. His love for cinema and exploration is reaching new heights with his upcoming release ‘Aval’, a horror flick, slated to release on November 3rd. Apart from playing the male lead, he has co written this script with director Milind Rau. Siddharth had also co produced this venture on behalf of his production company Etaki Entertainment along with Viacom18 Motion Pictures,a giant in concept oriented films that are made in all Indian languages. ‘Trident Arts’ Ravindran who is fast establishing himself as one of the most trusted names in film distribution, with ‘Vikram Vedha’ being his latest outing, is all set to release ‘Aval’ in a grand way.
Speaking about the movie, Siddharth says,” I am a huge fan of horror movies and has always felt iconic horror films are fewer in Indian cinema. This was the reason myself and Milind Rau decided to make ‘Aval’. Myself and Milind Rau are very good friends for ages, from the time we worked as assistant directors with Mani Ratnam sir. Though ‘Aval’ is based on a real life incident, we also did an extensive research about this script, genre and audience’s mindset about horror. We must admit that the concept of horror in Indian cinema has changed a lot over the past couple of decades that it has been diluted heavily. We wanted to do a pure horror movie on par with ‘The Conjuring’, ‘Paranormal activity’ and ‘The evil dead’ and that idea was the birth of ‘Aval’. Aval’ is a hardcore horror flick which will scare and frighten the audience with a strong content and at every opportunity. I am working with Atul Kulkarni after a long gap in ‘Aval’. His dedication and inputs have been fabulous. Andrea has been such a strength for the movie and this role will be one of the highlights of her wonderful career. I am very excited about the outcome and I am sure audience are in for a horror treat from November 3rd “.
