When Suriya announced a project with director Vignesh Shivan ahead of his original plan to work with director Muthaiah, many wondered what could be the reason behind this sudden reshuffling. While the exact reason still remains a mystery, it is believed that Nayanthara was instrumental in the collaboration.
Nayanthara, at the recently concluded Filmfare event, spoke to Suriya and suggested to give her boyfriend Vignesh's script a listen. When Suriya heard his story, he was immediately floored and that paved way for this project to materialize, revealed a reliable source.
Tipped to be an action film, the project will go on the floors from October, soon after Singam 3 is wrapped up. The project with Muthaiah, contrary to reports, has not been shelved. It will be taken up next year.
