Chakravyuha brings actor Arun Vijay to Kannada and he is glad that Puneeth’s eyes caught his potential and he was recommended for a prominent role. "I just wanted to explore a role in another language because as an actor in Tamil Nadu, we need to have a market all over South. I did get offers before from other regions, but this was a role in whcih I could prove my versatility. What Yennai Arindal did for me in Tamil, I am confident Chakravyuha will do for me in Kannada,” he says
According to the actor, working in Sarvanan's film was like working in three films and he had to put in a lot since the character was tough and action was involved. Mentioning Puneeth he says,
“Since our fathers were actors, we felt we have known each other for a long time and it helped us build a good rapport. We complemented each other well, especially in action sequences and that would be something which everyone can look forward to in Chakravyuha. Our best comes out only when we work against a talented actor and Puneeth helped me that way,” he says.
The actor, in the process of working in a Kannada film, feels that Sandalwood is no less than any industry. "Back home, it was said that Kannada is a bit laid-back industry because of the small market. This film actually proved it wrong. There were neither barriers nor budget constraints. It was a quality film,” he says.
Arun is now looking forward to do a Kannada film, but according to him, he will not take up another antagonist role, if he gets something beyond, Victor, the character he plays in Chakravyuha.
“Today, no actor is type cast. If people like the role, they appreciate. One change definitely creates an image. Technically I feel it is a good film. I have given my best but I don't know how much of my character will be shown after the cuts.
Anyway, both the hero and villain’s character travel parallelly," he says.
