Actor Suriyaâ€™s upcoming film â€˜7am Arivuâ€™ is likely to clash with Vijayâ€™s â€˜Velayudhamâ€™ on Deepavali. The two stars, who starred together in films like â€˜Friendsâ€™ more than a decade back, are all set to vie with each other for garnering the publicâ€™s attention on 26th October this year.
While â€˜Velayudhamâ€™ has Genelia and Hansika opposite Vijay and has been directed by â€˜remakeâ€™ king â€˜Jayamâ€™ Raja, Suriyaâ€™s â€˜7am Arivuâ€™ has been directed by the diminutive A.R. Murugadoss and pits the debutant Shruti Haasan opposite Suriya. â€˜Velayudhamâ€™ is said to be a wholesome commercial entertainer whereas â€˜7am Arivuâ€™ would be a never-before kind of film in Tamil cinema.
Suriya plays the triple roles of a scientist, a Buddhist Monk and a Circus artiste in the film which has been set in various periods of time. The talented and pretty Shruti Haasan would also be making her much-awaited debut in this film as a heroine. With her looks and grace, she would surely be luring the Tamil youths in the days to come, predict observers.
The audio launch of â€˜7am Arivuâ€™ has been scheduled to be held at the Chennai Trade Center on the 22nd September, at 6.00 PM. Itâ€™d be a grand ceremony attended by the bigwigs of the Tamil film industry. The producer, Udhayanidhi Stalin, has promised some high voltage performances during the event.
