Suriya, who recently completed shooting for Selvaraghavan’s NGK and is on the verge wrapping up KV Anand’s Kaappaan, is all set to commence work on his next yet-untitled project – dubbed as Suriya 38 - with director Sudha Kongara, who rose to fame with R Madhavan starrer Irudhi Suttru.
The latest update on the project is that Uriyadi director Vijay Kumar has been roped in to pen dialogues for the project, which will go on the floors from April. The film will be co-produced by Oscar-winning Guneet Monga, who is foraying into Tamil with this project.
Suriya’s 2D Entertainment, which is bankrolling the project, recently welcomed Guneet on board as co-producer via a tweet.
Vijay Kumar recently finished shooting for Uriyadi 2, in which he has played the lead. The film has been produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment. As the film gears up for release on April 5, reports have emerged that he has been signed to write dialogues for Suriya 38, which will be based on the life of Captain Gopinath of Air Deccan.
The news about Sudha's film with Suriya has been doing the rounds for nearly two years now. Suriya was mighty impressed with Sudha's Irudhi Suttru and expressed interest to collaborate.
In early 2017, Sudha pitched a story idea which Suriya really liked. Since he was busy Singam 3, Thaana Serntha Kootam and NGK, he had to postpone the project. The makers are hopeful of releasing the film by this year-end or early next year, according to reliable sources.
GV Prakash Kumar has already been signed to compose music. On Thursday, Rajasekar Pandian of 2D Entertainment met and thanked Prakash for the wonderful songs. Suriya sent a hand-written note thanking Prakash, which the latter shared on his Twitter page. "Thanks a lot @Suriya_offl sir for the lovely flowers and ur hand written note ... means a lot ... this album will be special for our whole team #suriya38 #GV70 #sudhakongra @2D_ENTPVTLTD @rajsekarpandian"
Prakash had recently revealed that he has already completed composing songs for the film, which will be simultaneously shot and released in Telugu.
