Tamil actor Arvind Swami, who made a successful comeback with Thani Oruvan last year, is now re-entering Bollywood with Tanuj Bhramar’s Dear Dad. The actor is well-known in north India, thanks to the popularity of films like Roja (1992) and Bombay (1995).
The 45-year-old actor says he chose Dear Dad as his comeback film because the subject was intriguing. “Films like these don’t get made very often and such stories need to be told. I will be seen essaying the role of a father in the film,” he said in a statement.
Dear Dad is a bittersweet coming-of-age story about a father and his 14 year old son. The father-son duo embark on an impromptu road trip from their home in Delhi, to Mussorie, where the son attends boarding school. Himanshu Sharma plays the role of the son in the film. The first look poster was released on Friday.
Arvind Swamy is currently shooting for the Telugu remake of Thani Oruvan and the Jayam Ravi film, Bogan.
