The news is not officially out but sources close to this development have revealed that Suriya has signed on Lingusamy’s film to be produced under the director’s banner.
Says a source, “This is the first time Suriya and Lingusamy are teaming up. This movie will be an action entertainer. Prakash Raj plays an important role in the flick. Their movie will kick-start only after a few months as Suriya is working on Maattrraan currently, post which he will work on Hari’s Singam 2.”
As for the actress who will play the lead opposite Suriya, sources say it will most likely be Samantha — though we hear the filmmakers have Parineeti Chopra in mind as well. “Samantha is currently suffering from a skin condition but she should be fine very soon. She is their first choice,” says the source, adding, “Parineeti has a three-film contract with a Bollywood studio but she’s likely to be done with the contract by the time the Suriya film starts. So there could be a possibility that she signs this on.”
The music director for the flick is Yuvan Shankar Raja and the camera will be handled by Nirav Shah, adds the source.
