It has already been confirmed that Suriya, upon wrapping up NGK with Selvaraghavan, will join hands with KV Anand for a yet-untitled project. The film, which marks the third time collaboration between Anand and Suriya, after Ayan and Maattrraan, will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.

Sirish, who made his acting debut via the Tamil-Telugu bilingual Gouravam, is making a comeback to Kollywood with this project.

On joining the project, Sirish said in a statement: “I’d come down to meet Anand sir a few days ago to firm up the details. I’ve already started prepping for my role and can’t wait to begin shoot.” Prod him about his character, and he says, “I can reveal nothing about my role except that it’s a well-etched one, and will be seen along with Suriya’s character throughout the film.”

A self-confessed Suriya fan, Sirish admits he’s happy to share screen space with him. “I’ve always said in all my interviews that I like Suriya’s work in Kollywood. So many of his fans have written to me on social media asking me to work with him. I’m happy this film has materialised,” says Sirish.

He added, “I’m thankful to Anand sir for giving me this opportunity. He’s been one of my favourite directors, and I’ve seen almost all his films, Ayan, Maattrraan and Anegan among others. Also, I’d done a film with Mohanlal sir earlier – 1971: Beyond Borders – and I feel honoured to work with him again. It’s going to be an amazing experience, working with great talents.”
