Following their successful collaboration in films such as Ayan and Maattrraan, Suriya and filmmaker KV Anand have joined hands for the third time for an action-thriller, currently dubbed Suriya 37.
Bankrolled by Lyca Productions on a lavish budget, the project officially went on the floors on June 25 in London. Regular shooting began with an official pooja ceremony which was attended by Suriya, Anand and other leading cast and crew members of the film.
It is already known that the film stars Sayyeshaa, Mohanlal, Boman Irani, Allu Sirish and Samuthirakani in pivotal roles, but rumours are buzzing with reports that Arya has been roped in to play the antagonist.
The makers are yet to officially announce or clarify these reports that are doing the rounds. If true, itâ€™ll be really interesting to see Arya in a role thatâ€™ll be a welcome departure from his regular roles in Tamil cinema. Itâ€™s worth mentioning that Arya had played a negative role in Malayalam film The Great Father, starring Mammootty.
The project will be shot in nearly ten countries and the crew has already zeroed in on some picturesque locations in New York, Brazil, England, Hyderabad and New Delhi. The film is touted to be the costliest project in actor Suriyaâ€™s career.
Meanwhile, the first time collaboration of Suriya and filmmaker Selvaraghavan, officially titled NGK and its abbreviation rumoured to be Nanda Gopalan Kumaran, is confirmed as a Deepavali release. The star will be teaming up next with director Sudha of Irudhi Suttru fame for Suriya 38. He also recently said that he was in discussions with director Hari who delivered the highly popular Singam franchise. However, the actor confirmed that it wonâ€™t be another Singam project.
Last seen playing a tribal character in Kadamban, Arya recently wrapped up romantic-comedy titled Gajinikanth, directed by Santosh of Hara Hara Mahadevaki and IAMK fame. Sayyeshaa of Vanamagan and Junga fame has been roped in to play the leading lady.
