Among popular Tamil stars, Suriya enjoys a strong fan base in Andhra and Telangana and it’s a well-known fact. The success of some of his dubbed Tamil films in Telugu states has been proof of his fast-growing popularity. Keeping in mind his increasing fan base, Suriya has finally taken the effort to dub on his own for Gang - the Telugu dubbed version of his next release, Thaana Serntha Kootam, slated to hit the screens for Pongal.
Apparently, Suriya spent over a week to dub in Telugu where he usually takes a day or two to dub in Tamil. He was hell-bent on getting his Telugu diction right, according to a source, and therefore didn’t mind spending more time to dub.
Although Suriya has dubbed briefly for Maattrraan; this is his maiden attempt at full-length dubbing in Telugu. The makers of Thaana Serntha Kootam, rumoured to be the remake of Special 26, have confirmed the film will hit the screens on January 12. On Tuesday, the Tamil version was cleared with U/A certificate and the Telugu version is expected to go to censors this week.
In the film, Suriya will be seen sporting two different looks and he will be seen trying his hands at full-length comedy after a long time. Produced by Studio Green, the film has music by Anirudh Ravichander.
Having been completely relieved of the project, Suriya is expected to commence work on Selvaraghavan’s project later this month. It’ll be his first collaboration with the Pudhupettai filmmaker and the yet-untitled film will be bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures. Sai Pallavi has been signed on to play the leading lady. It is believed that Suriya will sport a new look for the project which will be made on a lavish budget. There are also inside reports that Selvaraghavan is reviving Kaan, which he had launched earlier with Simbu, with Suriya in the titular role.
