SJ Suryah's highly anticipated flick with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, titled Uyarntha Manidhan, was unfortunately shelved in 2019 following a dispute between Amitabh Bachchan and the producers of the movie. Uyarntha Manidhan is directed by Tamilvannan of Kalvanin Kadhali fame. Following a long gap of close to 3 years, the film is finally set to resume production very soon. The various issues concerned with the production of Uyarntha Manidhan are being sorted out and the good news is expected very soon.

A new production house has entered the picture to revive the project and is currently in the process of acquiring the sole and exclusive intellectual property rights including all underlying works (script, story, dialogues, music) and any existing edited, unedited footage, rushes, prints, materials of the film. Public notice with regards to the same has been issued, informing that no other production house (Thiruchendur Murugan Productions - Mr. Suresh Kannan, Studio Five Elements, and more) that was previously involved in the film's making, will have any right, title, lien, and/or interest in and to the film and/or revenues of the film.

This news comes as a big relief for the fans who were expecting to witness SJ Suryah and Amitabh Bachchan together for the first time. An official announcement on the restart of the project, Uyarntha Manidhan will be made very soon. Uyarntha Manidhan will be made as a Tamil - Hindi bilingual and the Hindi version of the movie is called The Great Man (aka Tera Yaar Hoon Main).

Following the massive success of his incredible performance in Silambarasan TR's Maanaadu, SJ Suryah has become one of the most wanted actors in the country and his lineup surely sounds exciting. His next release will be Don, the Sivakarthikeyan starrer which is set to hit the screens on March 25. SJ Suryah will be playing the main antagonist in Vishal's upcoming pan Indian action biggie, Mark Antony, directed by Adhik Ravichandran of Trisha Illana Nayanthara fame. Bommai and Kadamaiyai Sei are the two films where SJ Suryah will be playing the lead and both the films are completed and ready for release.
