Suriya and filmmaker Selvaraghavan have teamed up for the first time for a project tentatively titled Suriya 36. On Tuesday, it was officially announced that the title and first look of the highly anticipated film will be unveiled on March 5.
The film, which was officially launched last month, also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi as the leading ladies. To be produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the project is gearing up for Diwali release.
The team has already wrapped up the first schedule of shooting. Recently, on a lavish budget of over Rs 3 crore, the makers recreated a set of the town of Ambasamudram. The entire second schedule will be shot in this set, which according to the team, will be one of the highlights of the project.
The genre of the film is being heavily guarded. Despite rumours doing the rounds that the film could be a revived version of Selvaraghavanâ€™s Kaan, which was launched in 2016 and dropped subsequently. However, sources close to the makers have rubbished the reports and clarified that the team is working on a fresh subject.
It was recently revealed that Suriyaâ€™s project wonâ€™t be a simple film and it requires a lot of research. Selva, in an interview last 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 Selvaâ€™s project will team up with cinematographer-filmmaker KV Anand, with whom he had already worked in Ayan and Maattrraan. The project is most likely to roll from May or June.
Suriya also has a film with Sudha Kongara, who shot to fame with R Madhavan starrer Irudhi Suttru. Actor-composer GV Prakash Kumar has confirmed that heâ€™s on board Suriya-Sudha project.
