Suriya was in Kochi recently to promote his upcoming film Thaana Serntha Kootam and during this event he answered a volley of questions thrown at him. When asked about when he would star in a direct Malayalam movie as he enjoys a huge fan base in the state, Suriya said that language is a barrier due to which he has not signed up a Malayalam movie yet. He added that as an actor he should know the language because only that will ensure he stays dedicated to the project.
Yet another question that was posed was about his interest in politics and whether he would venture into politics just as his colleagues Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. To this, Suriya said that he is not interested in politics and his social work would continue through his trust, Agharam Foundation, which helps socially and economically backward children pursue higher studies.
Coming back to his upcoming film release, Thaana Serntha Kootam, which has been directed by Vignesh Shivan, the star said that it was a pleasure to share the screen space with great artistes such as Karthik and Ranya Krishnan.
In the movie, he is paired opposite Keerthy Suresh with the star cast also including Nandha, Balaji, Anandraj, Suresh Chandra Menon, Brahamanandam. Anirudh has composed music for this heist comedy with Dinesh Krishnan cranking the camera and A Sreekar Prasad editing it.
According to reports, the film is inspired by a real life incident that happened in 1987. The story is about a group posing as income tax and CBI sleuths raiding a jewellery store and how they get caught.
Thaana Serntha Kootam is getting ready for a big release worldwide on January 12 and being a long weekend due to Pongal / Sankaranthi, it is expected to set the cash registers ringing at the box office.
