Suriya and filmmaker Selvaraghavan are teaming up for the first time for a project tentatively titled Suriya 36.

The combination of Suriya and Selvaraghavan has already set the anticipation bar very high and audiences are eagerly looking forward to the film.

While Rakul Preet Singh was originally considered for the female lead’s role, the makers recently confirmed that Sai Pallavi will play the lead.

On Friday evening, it was announced that Rakul is still part of the project and she will play another female lead’s role. To be produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the film is gearing up for Diwali release.

While not much is known about the genre of the film or the subject it might deal with, the industry grapevine suggests that the film could be a revived version of Selvaraghavan’s own film Kaan, which was shelved for various unknown reasons.

In 2016, Kaan was launched with Simbu in the lead and the makers even shot briefly, before dropping the project without clarification.

An official announcement from the makers regarding these reports which has been making the rounds since last week is awaited. The regular shooting is expected to commence after Pongal.

It was recently revealed that Suriya’s project won’t be a simple film and it requires lot of research. Selva, in an interview earlier this year, revealed that he had plans to work with Suriya soon after Kadhal Kondein, and the dream has been finally fulfilled after a decade.

Suriya, it is believed, after Selva’s project might team up with Gautham Menon. According to reliable sources, Gautham and Suriya had planned to work together soon after Singam 3. However, due to a prior commitment to Vignesh Shivan, he had to work start working on Thaana Serntha Kootam, which is gearing up for release on Pongal this year.
