Surya is known for his challenging roles. For instance in Perazhagan, Pithamagan and Gajini where all he played a role where other artists would quite lose their balance. But for Surya, Maatraan is what the biggest role as of now. For the first time in his experience, Surya is playing the character of a Conjoined twins. Conjoined twins meaning whose bodies are attached together, they both got to sleep, eat, work and do every other thing together. This is a role which is hard to act and shoot and on the other side many actors might not take this role at all.

The main female lead is played by Kajal Agarwal after cosidering several other artists like Sonakshi Sinha,Tapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma and Samantha Prabhu. The role of Surya’s mother is been played by Thara who played as Karthik’s sister in Agni Natchathiram.
This movie is produced and distributed by AGS Entertainment. This movie is known to be the leading release of Surya’s till now. And henceforth so many other distributors fought their way to buy the movie but finally the movie was bought for rupees 17 crores by Multi Dimentional Films among the Telugu distributors.
