Priyanka is one of the recent sensations on social media who has a very good fan following.

Priyanka Arul Mohan, who made her silver screen debut with the Nani starrer Gang Leader (Telugu), will be making her debut in Tamil cinema with Sivakarthikeyan’s Doctor which is currently in the post production stages. Even before the release of Doctor, Priyanka has managed to bag some more interesting projects and this indeed tells us that the young girl is here to stay.

Director Pandiraj is known to be an expert in handling family oriented rural dramas and we have already seen him deliver hit films through Kadai Kutty Singam and Namma Veettu Pillai. Let us see if Suriya 40 becomes a hattrick of sorts for Pandiraj. The shooting of the film is expected to begin next month and the shoot will happen as per the Covid-19 protocols. Suriya was last seen in Sudha Kongara directorial, Soorarai Pottru which was a massive hit among the audiences.
