Andrea is one actress who can talk good Tamil and she has been such a strength for ‘Aval’. I am acting with Atul Kulkarni after almost 12 years in ‘Aval’. Our last outing together was ‘Rang de Basanti’. Our ‘Jil Jung Juk’ team has work in ‘Aval’. We are proud to have done such a big budgeted horror movie. ‘Aval’ will scare you from November 3rd in theatres.

After ‘Rang De Basanthi’ I feel very happy to join with Siddharth after a gap of 12 years. Only good teams can make good Cinema. Bollywood always has a keen eye on Tamil cinema industry. Tamil cinema has always had mighty progress in technology and music. ‘Aval’ is all set to release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. This is going to be a very important and special horror film in Indian Cinema”
