After Thaana Serntha Kootam, Suriya will next be seen playing a leader in Selvaraghavan’s NGK – Nandha Gopala Krishnan. When the project was first announced, it was supposed to hit the screens this Deepavali along with Vijay’s Sarkar.

However, the film had to miss Deepavali release after Selvaraghavan fell ill and the shoot was stalled for a couple of weeks. The shoot was further delayed as Suriya went on to complete shooting major portion of his next project with KV Anand as he had to sport a different look for it.

The delay paved way to rumours that a rift between Selvaraghavan and Suriya resulted in the break. 

On Monday, Dream Warrior Pictures announced the commencement of a new schedule of the film via a tweet. This will be a 15-day schedule which will be predominantly shot in Chennai and Kochi.

Speaking to DT Next, producer SR Prabhu said that there’s no rift between Suriya and Selvaraghavan. He also clarified that the shoot had to be stalled because Suriya was occupied with his other project.  

In March earlier this year, the makers unveiled the title with the first look poster. Featured in the form of wall graffiti, Suriya resembled widely popular leader and revolutionist Che Guevara. The industry grapevine is that the film could be a political drama and Suriya may play a leader.   

The film, which was officially launched in February 2018, also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi as the leading ladies. Being produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the team has already wrapped up nearly 70 percent of shoot.

Recently, on a lavish budget of over Rs 3 Crores, the makers recreated a set of the town of Ambasamudram. Despite rumours doing the rounds that the film could be a revived version of Selvaraghavan’s Kaan, which was launched in 2016 and dropped, sources close to the makers have clarified that the team is working on a fresh subject.
