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 actor has already worked with the director in Ayan and Maattrraan.

It was announced recently that Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and Allu Sirish will also be part of the project. The film marks Allu Sirish’s debut in Kollywood and the return of Mohanlal to Tamil cinema four years after the 2014 Vijay starrer Jilla. This will be the first time that Allu Sirish will be sharing screen space with Suriya, whom Sirish had previously confessed to be a fan of.

Now the makers have roped in Boman Irani and Samuthirakani as a part of the mega project. “The team is elated that Boman Irani has agreed to be a part of the film. He is known to be extremely choosy about his scripts. In fact, director Shankar and Anand himself had tried to get him for one of their previous films, but that did not happen. This film will mark the Munna Bhai MBBS actor’s Tamil debut,” a source informed TOI.

The film, which will start rolling from 23 June in London, will be shot in nearly ten countries. According to sources, the crew has already zeroed in on some picturesque locations in New York, Brazil, England, Hyderabad and New Delhi. The film, bankrolled by Lyca Productions, is touted to be the costliest project in actor Suriya’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 won’t be another Singam project.
