Announced earlier this year by Suriya during the promotions of his film Thaanaa Serndha Koottaam, the actor revealed his reunion with director KV Anand for the third time after their hit films, Ayan and Maattrraan.
Tentatively being called Suriya 37, the film will be produced under the Lyca Productions banner with music by Harris Jayaraj, Gavemic U Ary for the cinematography, DRK Kiran for art direction and dialogues by Pattukottai Prabhakar.
The film will flag off once Suriya completes his ongoing film, NGK, under Selvaraghavan’s direction alongside Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh as the female leads.
Filming on Suriya 37 is expected to take place later this year in several locations across the world including New York, Delhi, Hyderabad and in Brazil.
In the midst of this, reports started surfacing earlier this week stating 'wink' girl and current sensation Priya Prakash Varrier was the prime contender for the female lead role opposite Suriya in the film.
With the speculations gathering steam, director KV Anand has now reportedly gone on to state that Priya Prakash Varrier is not part of the film and all such rumors are completely false.
Priya Prakash Varrier’s popularity has been unlike any other in recent times after the up-and-coming 18-year old actress shot to instant nationwide fame.
Her cute expressions in the 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi" song from her upcoming Malayalam film, Oru Adaar Love went on to be lapped up by fans.
With Priya Prakash Varrier’s name now out of the equation in Suriya 37, the wait continues as to who will be cast opposite Suriya in the film.
As for Suriya’s role in the film, we believe he might be playing a detective if KV Anand were to write a screenplay based on the detective stories penned by the film’s dialogue writer, Pattukottai Prabhakar.
