Aravaan directed by Vasanth Balan is shooting on a brisk pace. The film features Aadhi, Pasupathy, Archana Kavi and Dhansika in the lead roles.

Director Vasanth Balan says "Aravaan is a challenging film because of the subject and huge scale of production. The film is based on the novel Kaval Kottam which is written by Su.Venkatesan. Aravaan has historical significance and have used excerpts from the book for my screenplay"

The team has erected a huge set around Arittapatti hills near Melur in Madurai with 100 huts made of bamboo sticks, palm leaves and stones. The set includes 'Karuppan Temple' which is also most popularly referred t as Somberi Madam these days. The set will reflect the Pandian era.

Aravaan is based on the life in South India during the eighteenth century.
