2021 is set to be a grand year for both Silambarasan TR and director Gautham Menon, who are once again collaborating for the third time for an upcoming venture being produced under Dr. Ishari K. Ganesh's Vels Film International banner. The project also sees Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman teaming up with Simbu and Gautham Menon once again, thus making it his third film with the two after their 2010 box office blockbuster, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada in 2017. In that light, ever since the latest project was announced, fans have been waiting for updates on the heroine and the title, with Gautham Menon on Thursday on the occasion of his birthday giving a special treat. 

Taking to his Twitter page, Gautham Menon unveiled the title of his next film with STR and A. R. Rahman revealing it to be Nadhigalilae Neeradum Suriyan. Sharing the Tamil and English versions of the Nadhigalilae Neeradum Suriyan title posters, GVM captioned his tweet, "It’s all making sense now. Happy to announce the title ... @arrahman @SilambarasanTR_ @IshariKGanesh @VelsFilmIntl #SilambarasanTR47". Expectations have been massive among fans for the Simbu-GVM-ARR project considering the trio's previous two films - Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada - remain etched in the memories of fans. 

Although there has been strong talk on social media that Nadhigalilae Neeradum Suriyan could be the sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, no official confirmation has come out as yet in regard to it. It is to be noted that a short film titled Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn directed by GVM was released last year during the lockdown period, STR and Trisha reprising their roles from VTV. The Nadhigalilae Neeradum Suriyan title announcement has come as a massive treat for Gautham Menon and Simbu fans, who will be looking forward to the duo along with A. R. Rahman to come out with yet another memorable film that surpasses their earlier two films.
