Suriya is currently in Rajamundhry in Andhra for the shooting of his upcoming film NGK. Reports are that the star had alighted from his caravan to reach the shooting spot when his fans, around 5000 of them, surrounded him wanting to shake hands and take a selfie.
Suriya was caught in it for several minutes until help reached him and eventually he managed to get back into his vehicle. Following this incident, the shooting of the film had to be called off for the day and the team arranged for the shooting in the same location the next day with adequate security arrangements. This incident shows that Suriya has a large fan base not only in his home state but in the neighboring states as well.
NGK aka Nandha Gopalan Kumaran is touted to be a political drama that is being directed by Selvaraghavan. It is being bankrolled by SR Prakashbabu and SR Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures while Reliance Entertainment has bagged the distribution rights of the film. The first poster of NGK was released on March 5th this year, the second poster was out to commemorate Suriyaâ€™s birthday on July 23.
NGK has Suriya in the title role and sharing the screen space with him are Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh. Tollywood actor Jagapathi Babu will be seen playing a pivotal role in it. Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the tunes for NGK and Siva Kumar Vijayan is cranking the camera with Praveen KL in charge of the editing.
This Suriya starrer is gearing up for release for Diwali this year and it may be out at the theatres on November 6 to coincide with the festival. Interestingly, the star has had two film releases this year with one being Thaana Serntha Kootam in which he played the lead role and the other Kadai Kutty Singam, which he had produced under his own banner 2D Entertainment and had made a cameo appearance.
