Suriya who is gearing up for the release of Jai Bhim has officially announced his next project and it is indeed big news for the fans of Tamil cinema. As widely speculated, Suriya will be teaming up with ace filmmaker Bala for a new film and this project is expected to go on floors very soon. Suriya took to his official Twitter page to share this good news with his fans and followers. Expressing his excitement on the project, Suriya tweeted, "என்னைவிட என் மீது அதிக நம்பிக்கை வைத்தவர்… ஒரு புதிய உலகை எனக்கு அறிமுகம் செய்து அடையாளம் தந்தவர்.. 20 ஆண்டுகளுக்கு பின் மீண்டும் அதே ஆர்வத்துடன் அவர் முன் நான்… அப்பா ஆசீர்வதிக்க மீண்டும் ஓர் அழகிய பயணம் என் பாலா அண்ணனுடன்... அனைவரின் அன்பும் ஆதரவும் தொடர வேண்டுகிறேன்…".

Suriya's tweet is loosely translated in English as, "The person who believed in me more than myself. The person who introduced a new world to me. After 20 years, with the same enthusiasm, I stand before him. With the blessings of Appa, a beautiful journey begins with Bala anna. Seeking the love and support of everyone". This announcement has taken the fans by surprise and people are now eagerly looking forward to the film. Suriya will be bankrolling this film under his banner of 2D Entertainment.
