After the dismal show of SI 3, Suriya has pinned high hopes on Thaana Serntha Kootam, which is being written and directed by Vignesh Shivan. The film marks the first collaboration of Suriya and the young filmmaker, best known for helming Poda Podi and Naanum Rowdydhaan. Keerthy Suresh plays the lead heroine in the film, which marks her first collaboration with Suriya.
The makers have made it official that the much-awaited theatrical trailer of the film will be unveiled on November 30, it was announced on Monday. The audio is expected to be launched by end of December.
Just one song is left to be shot, which will be done once Keerthy Suresh comes back from her ongoing schedule of Pawan Kalyanâ€™s PSPK 25, directed by Trivikram. The post-production of the film is underway and Suriya has completed dubbing his portions. The makers confirmed that the film will hit the screens for Pongal next year since no other Tamil biggie has so far confirmed to release around the same time.
The film has a solid star cast, with Ramya Krishnan, Nanda, Kalaiarasan, RJ Balaji, Thambi Ramaiah and veteran comedian Senthil playing important roles in the film. Former filmmaker-actor Suresh Menon has been roped in to play a pivotal role and it also marks the comeback of legendary comedian Senthil in Tamil cinema after a long gap.
The project has music by Anirudh Ravichander, who is collaborating with Suriya for the first time. A single from the film Naana Thaana was released a few months ago that has been continuously topping the charts.
Billed as a full-length comedy entertainer, itâ€™s after a long gap that Suriya has decided to try his hands at comedy and this shift from regular action films might work in his favour. Suriya will be seen in two different looks in Thaana Serntha Kootam. He will be playing a boy-next-door and will be seen in a clean-shaven look as well.
