Suriya and Selvaraghavan are set to team up for the first time and the yet-untitled project is expected to go on the floors from early next year. While not much is known about the genre of the film or the subject it might deal with, we have learnt from reliable sources that the film could be a revived version of Selvaraghavan’s own film Kaan, which was shelved for various reasons unknown. 

In 2016, Kaan was launched with Simbu in the lead and the makers even shot briefly, before dropping the project without clarification. An official announcement from the makers regarding these reports which has been making the rounds since last week, is still awaited.

Teaming up for the first time, the combination of Suriya and Selvaraghavan has already set the anticipation bar very high and audiences are eagerly looking forward to the film. While Rakul Preet Singh was originally considered for the leading lady’s role, the makers on Wednesday confirmed that Sai Pallavi will play the lead. Even though it was originally believed to be a two-heroine subject and both the heroines were to be paired with Suriya, it has now been clarified that it’ll only feature one heroine.

It was recently revealed that Suriya’s project won’t be a simple film and it requires a lot of research. Selva, in an interview earlier this 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 Selva’s project, might team up with Gautham Menon. According to reliable sources, Gautham and Suriya had planned to work together soon after Singam 3; however, due to a prior commitment to Vignesh Shivan, he had to work start working on Thaana Serntha Kootam, which is gearing up for release for Pongal 2018.
