Chennai: Actor Arya, who has turned producer with the forthcoming Tamil romance drama `Amarakaaviyam`, was moved to tears after watching the film at a private screening recently.
Featuring Arya`s brother Sathya in the lead, `Amarakaaviyam` is directed by his best friend Jeeva Shankar.
"I was amazed with the final output of `Amarakaaviyam`. Jeeva Shankar and Sathya have recreated a romantic tale that will match international standards. I was so touched that I wept. I know and understand the pressure of a hero, but this is the first time I felt the pride of producing a good film," Arya said in a statement.
An overwhelmed Arya ordered 143 cakes and distributed them among the film`s unit and close friends.
"(The number) 143 is the symbolism of `I love you` and it instantly struck me to choose this number," he added.
Debutante Mia George is playing the female lead in `Amarakaaviyam`, produced under Arya`s home banner - The Show People.
