Filmmaker Pandiraj, who is getting ready to commence work on his next project with Sivakarthikeyan, will soon join hands for the first time with Suriya for a rural entertainer, according to the industry grapevine.

Suriya had previously produced Pandiraj’s Pasanga 2 but this would be the first time he will act in his direction. The yet-untitled project is expected to go on the floors later this year. It is said that both of them will finish their respective commitments and take out time for this film which will be bankrolled by 2D Entertainment. 

Following the runaway success of Kadai Kutty Singam, Pandiraj was supposed to immediately work with Suriya. However, due to the actor’s multiple other commitments, he was asked to go ahead with his project with Sivakarthikeyan.

Pandiraj’s film with Sivakarthikeyan is expected to go on the floors very soon. Dubbed as SK 16, the film marks the third time union of Siva and Pandiraj after Marina and Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga.

Interestingly in 2012 Siva made his acting debut with the Tamil film Marina which was directed by Pandiraj. Tipped to be a rural romantic comedy, the film is being bankrolled by Sun Pictures and the makers unveiled the complete cast and crew in a series of posters on Tuesday.

The project will see Sivakarthikeyan team up with Anu Emmanuel and Aishwarya Rajesh, who will be seen playing the leading ladies.

The supporting cast features Yogi Babu, Soori, Samuthirakani, RK Suresh, Natarajan and Bharathiraja in pivotal roles. Nirav Shah has been roped in to crank the camera, while Antony Ruben will take care of editing. Veera Samar has been signed as the art director and D Imman has been roped in to compose music.

On the other hand, Suriya has a slew of films in the making. Recently he commenced the shooting of his project with Sudha Kongara project titled Soorarai Potru, co-produced by Guneet Monga in association with 2D Entertainment. He is also awaiting the release of NGK directed by Selvaraghavan which will hit the marquee on May 31, 2019.
