The Tamil tele-serial "Arasi" (spelt "Arase" on the title card) is the sequel to "Selvi", the previous offering from Radaan Mediaworks in the 9.30-10 PM timeslot. This teleserial continues the unfinished storylines from "Selvi", while introducing new characters and plots, mainly revolving around the titular character, Senthamizharase (played by Raadhika Sarathkumar in a dual role, since she also reprises her role as Selvi from the prequel).


In "Selvi", an unforeseen turn of events forces the title character, Selvi, to marry the husband of her best friend Thamarai (played by Saritha) while the latter was comatose. Thamarai was understandably furious when she recovered from her coma to find that not only had Selvi married her husband, but also gave birth to his daughter, Kaavery.

Unfortunately, Thamarai failed to see what a ruthless and manipulative her husband Jaydev, or GJ (played by Venu Arvind) really was, believing his lies instead of the truth Selvi kept trying to tell her. The former best friends became sworn enemies. GJ entered into a scheme producing duplicate medical drugs, leading to the death of more than a hundred people. Since the business was registered in Thamarai's name, she was arrested and only then came to realize the truth - how GJ had manipulated Selvi into marrying him for the sake of his and Thamarai's children. Upon overhearing GJ's plan to get rid of Thamarai and remarry the villainous Maya, Thamarai committed suicide in prison, but not before writing a letter to Selvi, in which she apologizes to Selvi and asks her to look after her children.At the start of "Arase", Selvi has more than a conquest for justice for her dead best friend on her plate. She is devastated to learn that Yogeswaran, who she believed to be her father, in fact adopted her, and her biological mother, Senthamizharase, is still alive. Senthamizharase, the exact image of Selvi, is however not keen on meeting her illegitimate daughter since she is now a respected police superintendent and married to a retired judge with two children of their own. GJ meanwhile wants Selvi to come over to his side in the investigation, especially when the people he was working for turn out to be members of a ruthless criminal organization. GJ will stop at nothing, even using his own daughter's affections to gain a path to Selvi.

Meanwhile, Arase will go to any lengths to keep the shame of her past secret from her loving family. But when her husband, Judge Karthigeyan (played by Sivachandran) is placed in charge of the inquiry commission, there is no way he will not miss meeting Selvi and discover the truth.

During the 50th episode, Arase's husband, Karthigeyan meets Selvi during investigations, although he doesn't reveal to Selvi that he is Arase's husband or to Arase that he has seen her daughter. He starts acting strangely and upon his return to Mumbai, presents Arase with a photo of Selvi as her birthday present. By this he conveys to Arase that he has met Selvi and knows her secret. A worried Arase summons her mother, Chandramadhi to Mumbai. Will Arase and Chandramadhi succeed in keeping Selvi's existence a secret from her family? It seems as though they will fail when Selvi is mistakenly kidnapped in lieu of Arase by Ganga [a rich prostitute who has political background is arrested in a brave way by Senthamizarasi] who has sworn revenge on Arase.Ganga tries to take revenge on Arase by making her brother to love Kalaiarasi [Daughter of Senthamizarasi] .Meanwhile Senthamizarasi rescues Mahima [Selvi's Younger sister] and the entire family makes a move to Chennai.Arase tries to investigate Mahima in a rash manner which is not liked by Selvi.Yogeswaran who adopts Selvi goes to Karthigeyan and complains about Arase and Karthigeyan scolds her.But Arase is not convinced. Meanwhile Madhu [Selvi's younger sister] is fond of his lover Narayanan whose profession is to sell all women in redlight areas in Mumbai.Madhu thinks Narayanan is innocent.He is the one who sent Mahima to Mumbai.Madhu tells to Mahima that she is leaving for Mumbai but Mahima opposes this.She pleads her not to leave to Mumbai but Madhu does not listen to her.The next day Inspector Vasanthi calls Madhu on her cellphone and tells her to be alert.She catcheshold of Narayanan and in the investigation he reveals all shocking facts.Madhu is shocked to listen this and she apologizes to everyone.On the other hand GJ tries to take the advantage of Arase's daughter-in-law's weakness of stealing things whatever she finds.
