Harippad: Arun Raj, a young director, is stepping into the world of Malayalam cinema from a one – room house without electricity. Arunraj (30), the son of Rajan and Usha, has been dreaming of cinema since childhood.
Now Arun is satisfied that it has been completed. Arun Raj, who has directed and shot three films, has already made his mark in this field. As a child, Arun’s greatest desire was to catch the cameraman’s light when he went to weddings. Arun’s dream was to be known as a great photographer within that day. Arun Raj, a BSc Electronics graduate, went through many hardships to reach his desired field. During his graduation, he got a job as a Coast Guard and went to Visakhapatnam for training, but realized that this was not his area and returned home. It was difficult for the financially disadvantaged Arun’s family to accommodate this. When he could not stand the questions of his family and the natives, he left. Later he worked in a thatch shop in Koothattukulam. He also worked as a waiter in a hotel in Palarivattom, Ernakulam.
Hotel life from 2010 to 2016 provided an opportunity to enter the film industry. After 2016, he did retail work in the film industry. Production controller Vinod, who met him while working in a hotel, and producer and actor Binusathyan paved the way for Arun Raj’s film. In 2019, Arun directed and directed his debut film Muttuvin Opening. Filming was completed when Kovid came under control, but the release did not take place. The film hits theaters next month. In 2020, Arun Raj won the Best Director and Best Cinematography award at the Indian International Film Festival for his short film Memories of Murder, set in Kovid. The camera of the movie Welcome to Pandimala has been moved for the last three theaters. He also directed and shot the upcoming film Cross on Netflix. Devananda, who is writing, directing and directing the film, has completed his pooja. Filming will start soon. Famous actors are playing in the movie.
With the rise of Arun from a one-room house without electricity, he has become the pride of the family and the locals. He is currently living in a rented house due to inconveniences at home. Everyone agrees that Arun’s decision was right. Arun is survived by his wife Nitya, parents and sister Athira, who have been married for nine years.
