Suriya 37 is turning out to be one of the most exciting multi-starrers to look forward to. Last week, after the makers announced that Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has been roped in for a crucial role in the KV Anand directed film, Telugu actor Allu Sirish has also been signed to essay an important part.
As the makers are busy finalizing the rest of the cast, it has been learnt that Shivaay fame Sayyeshaa has been signed as the leading lady. It’s worth mentioning that Sayyeshaa recently finished shooting with Suriya’s brother Karthi in upcoming rural drama Kadai Kutty Singam.
“It’s true that Sayyeshaa has been signed for the project. The official announcement will come from the makers,” a source close to the actor told Hindustan Times. Having made her Tamil debut with director Vijay’s Vanamagan, Sayyeshaa went on to act in Arya’s Ghajinikanth and Kadai Kutty Singam, which are gearing up for release soon. This project will mark her maiden collaboration with Suriya, who is reuniting with KV Anand for the third time.
Suriya and Anand have successfully worked in two films before — Ayan and Maattrraan. Talking to popular entertainment portal Behindwoods, Anand had said: “We are planning to shoot in more than 10 different locations throughout the world. We will be filming in New York, Brazil, New Delhi, Hyderabad, and other places. A very important portion of the movie will be shot in Delhi. Shoot dates haven’t been decided yet and we will start rolling only after Suriya completes his current film, NGK.”
Anand also confirmed that Anthony will take care of editing in the film. Best known for his writing collaboration with SuBa in his films so far, Anand for the first time will be working with novelist Pattukotai Prabhakar on the film’s script and screenplay. However, he clarified the story will not be based on one of his novels. Harris Jayaraj, who had worked with Anand and Suriya in their previous collaborations, has been signed to compose music. Gavemic U Ary of Jigarthanda fame will crank the camera.
Anand plans to wrap up the project by August or September as Suriya has a project with Sudha Kongara in his kitty next. Meanwhile, Suriya is presently busy shooting for Selvaraghavan’s NGK, in which he’s rumoured to be playing a comrade, going by the first look of the film.
