Suriya's new film with director Siva was officially launched this week and the shoot of the film is also currently underway in Chennai. Tentatively called Suriya 42, this film will mark Siva's first collaboration with Suriya and it is going to be exciting to see what the star filmmaker has in store for the fans, this time. Rumours are rife that this will be a period drama, but an official confirmation on the same is awaited. Produced by KE Gnanavel Raja under the banner of Studio Green in association with UV Creations, this film will have music composed by Devi Sri Prasad who is working with Suriya for the fifth time.

Vetri Palanisamy has been roped in to handle the cinematography while the art direction and stunt choreography are to be taken care of by Milan and Supreme Sundar respectively. However, the makers were tight-lipped about the star cast of the film and the fans were waiting for updates about it. The wait has now finally ended as we have gotten the information on the cast of Suriya 42. The official launch event video of Suriya 42 was released by the makers this morning (August 26) and through the video, the lead cast has been confirmed, much to the delight of the fans.

Bollywood star Disha Patani will be playing the female lead in the film and this one will mark the talented actress' debut in Tamil cinema. It is going to be refreshing to see a new pair in the form of Suriya and Disha Patani and an exciting treat indeed awaits fans. Disha Patani was supposed to make her debut in Kollywood with Sundar C's Sangamithra, but the film was dropped due to various reasons and Suriya 42 will now be her first in Tamil. Apart from Disha Patani, the film features Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley, Kovai Sarala, Anandaraj, and others in important roles.
