The buzz in the industry is that director S J Suryah has approached Venkat Prabhu, Shankar and Lingusamy for making a guest appearance in his Isai.
SJ Suryah is currently working on Isai, which has him playing the role of a music composer. The actor-director had earlier told CT that he plans to rope in four top-notch directors to play themselves in the film. While he has already finished shooting certain portions with Vishnuvardhan, we hear he has asked Venkat Prabhu, Lingusamy and Shankar to make cameo appearances in the film.
Suryah had said, “The film is set in a filmy background and the script requires four directors to make a cameo appearance. I’ve finished shooting some scenes with Vishnuvardhan. I’m in talks with three top directors for a guest appearance as well.”
A source says, “Since Suryah played a small role in Shankar’s Nanban, we believe the ace director has given his nod as a return favour. And Venkat and Lingusamy are good friends with Suryah and in all probability, will shoot for the roles by this month.”
Isai also marks Suryah’s debut as a music composer.
