Actress Surabhi who made her entry into the industry with Ivan Vera Mathiri, was last seen in Dhanush's Velai Illa Pattathari. The actress was appreciated for her performance in both the films.

Now, the recent development is that Surabhi has been roped in to play the female lead in director Manimaran's film titled Pugazh. She will be romancing Jai in this action thriller.

Earlier, it was rumoured that Trisha will be playing the heroine. The makers have now zeroed in on Surabhi after a lot of considerations.
