After the humongous success of Asuran, director Vetri Maaran became one of the most sought after directors in Tamil cinema. His next directorial will feature Soori in the lead role and it is produced by Elred Kumar under the banner of RS Infotainment. Vetri Maaran is also committed to doing a film with Suriya, titled Vaadivaasal, a film based on the sport of Jallikattu. This rural action drama will be produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu under the banner of V Creations. Very recently, there were unconfirmed rumours that Suriya walked out of the project due to various reasons.

An unofficial Twitter handle which impersonated Kalaipuli S Thanu also tweeted that Suriya has walked out of Vaadivaasal, adding that a new hero will be replaced soon. This caused a confusion among the fans. However, producer Thanu immediately cleared the air by making a strong statement. Through his official Twitter handle, Thanu requested the fans not to be misguided by the fake Twitter profiles and confirmed that Suriya is very much part of Vaadivaasal. Thanu also made it clear that the film will be a grand success.

Thanu tweeted, “ இந்த ட்விட்டர் அக்கவுண்ட் என்னுடையது அல்ல, என் பெயரை உபயோகித்து தவறான செய்தி பரப்புகிறார்கள். வாடிவாசல் பற்றி வந்த செய்தி முற்றிலும் பொய். இதை யாரும் நம்ப வேண்டாம். எண்ணியது எண்ணியபடி, சொல்லியது சொல்லியபடி, வெற்றி மாறன் (@VetriMaaran) இயக்கத்தில் சூர்யா (@Suriya_offl) நடிப்பில் “வாடிவாசல்" வலம் வரும் வாகை சூடும் #Vaadivasal #StopSpreadingFakeNews”.

Thanu’s tweet is loosely translated as, “That Twitter profile is not mine. Someone is using my name and spreading false information. The news about Vaadivaasal is completely false and baseless. I request everyone not to believe it. As announced and planned, Vaadivaasal in Suriya’s acting and Vetri Maaran’s direction will release and succeed in style. #StopSpreadingFakeNews”. This clarification statement from Thanu came as a sigh of relief for Suriya fans who were confused for a few hours because of the unauthentic reports.

Vetri Maaran is currently busy with the pre-production works of Vaadivaasal and the film is expected to take off in the second half of next year. This film will have music scored by GV Prakash Kumar who is in great form with back to back success of Asuran and Soorarai Pottru. Details regarding the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be known.
