Suriya has an exciting line-up of films this year. As he awaits the release of Thaana Serntha Kootam, a remake of Akshay Kumar’s Special 26 which is due to hit the screens this week, he has officially confirmed that he will join hands with filmmaker KV Anand for the third time later this year. This film will go on the floors after he wraps up the yet-untitled Selvaraghavan project.

Speaking to reporters in Hyderabad while promoting Gang, the Telugu dubbed version of Thaana Serntha Kootam, Suriya said: “After my film with Selvaraghavan, I’ll work with KV Anand. The film will most likely go on the floors from April.”

Anand and Suriya have previously worked together in Ayan and Maattraan. Without divulging much information about the project, Suriya said he’s kicked about joining hands with Anand, whose last directorial was Kavan. During the interaction, Suriya also confirmed he is in discussions with director Hari and Vikram Kumar for future collaboration. With Hari, Suriya has delivered the highly popular Singam franchise and the science-fiction action flick 24 with Vikram Kumar.

Asked if he’d do another Singam film with Hari, he said: “This won’t be another Singam project. I usually team up with Hari sir once in a couple or three years. I work with him on projects that help me expand my market. I still remember the time when we didn’t have the budget to do 7 am Arivu as nobody was willing to bet on the film. A couple of months later Singam first part released and turned out to be a blockbuster. The success of Singam earned me the license to do 7 am Arivu. I need to do a film like Singam once in a while to experiment with projects such as 24.”

Unlike his Singam avatar where he sported a handlebar moustache, Suriya will be seen in a variety of looks in Thaana Serntha Kootam. Tipped to be a full-length heist comedy, it’s after a long gap Suriya has decided to try his hands at comedy and this shift from regular action films might work in his favour. Directed by Vignesh Shivn, the film also stars Keerthy Suresh, Ramya Krishnan, Karthik and Senthil in important roles.
