Actor-filmmaker SJ Suryah is all set to make a bilingual. He has now confirmed of having a discussion with the Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan about this film. To be made in Tamil and Hindi, the film will be titled Uyarndha Manidhan and The Great Man respectively.

Confirming the progress about this bilingual, SJ Suryah had posted on a social networking site: “Happy Christmas-love and peace to all ...Project # “The Great man”(Hindi) / “Uyarndha Manidhan”(Tamil) is going on to the next stage....exciting points has been discussed with @SrBachchan shaab...stay tuned...exciting updates soon...sharing it with @rajinikanth always thx.”

With SJ Suryah planning to rope in Amitabh Bachchan for Uyarndha Manithan, it will mark the star’s debut in the Tamil film industry. Incidentally, the Big B is currently associated with the Telugu movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in which he shares the screen space with the megastar Chiranjeevi.

Last seen as the villain in Spyder and Mersal which won him accolades, Suryah will be teaming up with Director Nelson Venkatesan, who made an impressive directorial debut with Oru Naal Koothu, for Monster.

Suryah also awaits the release of  Selvaraghavan’s horror-thriller Nenjam Marappathillai that has been struggling to find a release for a year. Originally scheduled to release in December 2016, the film has been delayed for reasons yet unknown and this has disappointed many who have been looking forward to its release.

It may be noted here that SJ Suryah made his directorial debut with the Ajith starrer Vaali in 1999 which was a massive hit. He has directed hit movies such as Kushi, New, Anbe Aaruyire and Isai (2015). SJ Suryah made his acting debut with New and went on to act as hero in films like Kalvanin Kadhali, Thirumagan, Vyabari, to name a few.
