Suriya is set to delight fans with a number of promising films in the days ahead, with the actor set to celebrate his birthday on Friday (July 23). As part of his birthday treat for fans, it was announced earlier this week that the first look from his upcoming film, the tentatively titled Suriya 40, will be unveiled on July 22 (Thursday) evening at 6 pm. As the anticipation for the Suriya 40 first look is building up, Sun Pictures, the prestigious banner producing the film, released a special short promo on Wednesday leaving fans even more excited. 

Suriya 40 marks the first time the actor is working under Pandiraj's direction after the filmmaker had earlier collaborated with him under his 2D Entertainment banner for Pasanga 2 and Kadaikutty Singam. Expectations are high for the upcoming film touted to be an action venture against a rural backdrop as the promotions so far have suggested there will be plenty of mass moments included. Pandiraj, who delivered two continuous box office successes with Kadaikutty Singam and Namma Veettu Pillai, will be looking to hit the bullseye once again with Suriya 40. Likewise, Suriya will want to carry forward the momentum from Soorarai Pottru, which received universal praise. 

Apart from including action elements, Suriya 40 is also expected to have a mix of family emotions and romance, with music by chart-buster D. Imman. The film also features Doctor fame Priyanka Arul Mohan as the female lead, followed by Sathyaraj, Saranya Ponvannan, Vinay, Devadarshini Chetan, Ilavarasu, Subbu Panchu, Dhivya Dhuraisamy, 'Master' Cibi, Saran Shakthi, Akash Premkumar among others in pivotal roles. Shooting for the film is at present being carried out in locations in and around Karaikudi, with production expected to come to a wrap in September.
