Arulnithi's upcoming film with Raatchasi-fame SY Gowthamaraj has been titled Kazhuvethi Moorkan. Backed by Ambeth Kumar's Olympia Movies, the film will be a rural actioner. "Kazhuvethi Moorkan is an action film set in Ramanathapuram. The title is based on Arulnithi's character name, Moorkasamy. In districts like Ramanathapuram, every temple will have a Kazhuvethi tree which was used to execute the medieval capital punishment method. The tree is a character in the film," says director SY Gowthamaraj.

The film has Dushara Vijayan playing the female lead. "She plays a bank employee and Arulnithi's Moorkan is the son of the village's former President, and a farmer.  In addition to the leads, Santhosh Pratap plays a very important role in the film," shares Gowtham adding that the film has elements like romance, revenge, betrayal, and friendship.

The first-look poster of Kazhuvethi Moorkan was launched by Sivakarthikeyan on Wednesday and it features an intense Arulnithi walking with a sickle in his hand.

Kazhuvethi Moorkan has Saya Devi paired opposite Santhosh. It also stars Munishkanth, Sharath Lohithaswa, Raja Simman, and Yaar Kannan. The film has music by D Imman, cinematography by Sridhar and editing by Nagooran.

Kazhuvethi Moorkan has been shot extensively shot in Ramanathapuram, Sivagangai, Rameswaram, and Virudhunagar; and the shooting has been wrapped up. The film, which is currently in its post-production stage, is aimed to be released in April or May.
