Kollywood star Arya went on Facebook Live last week, seeking a suitable bride for him. The video received an overwhelming response from young women all over the world.
Just like the TV shows Swayamvar and Rakhi Ka Swayamwar, South star Arya is all set to find his bride through reality show Enga Veettu Mappilai, which is being aired on Colors TV.
More than a lakh applicants have contacted the show through the phone and around 7,000 more have responded in writing, stating their desire to marry the actor. However, 16 contestants have been shortlisted for the show, and hopefully, Arya will tie the knot with the winner.
Among the 16 contestants, two girls are from Kerala - Seetha Lekshmi and Deva Surya. Both have done small roles in Malayalam movies. The girls were seen giving gifts to Arya in the first episode of Enga Veetu Mappilai. Seetha Lekshmi gifted a coconut to Arya, which he broke with his bare hands. On the other hand, Deva Surya gifted Arya a shirt and a dhoti, and the actor said that he would wear it for his wedding.
The actor asked the girls to dress in bridal attire and introduce themselves to the viewers. During the introduction, Arya told Seetha that she is cuter than actress Nazriya when she said Raja Rani was her favourite romantic movie.
