"Nayantara had the opportunity to work with a leading hero, but she didn't mind working with me as she believed in the script. I've just started my career and at this point, to even work with a star like her means a lot," Aari told IANS.
"I think I need to thank her for agreeing to work with me. It's not every day you find star actors willing to work with newcomers," he added.
Nayantara plays a mother in the film, which is directed by debutant Ashwin Saravanan. She came on board because the producers felt someone with great screen presence could only pull off the role.
Aari is currently busy shooting for another Tamil film "Maane Thene Peyae".
