Principal photography on Suriya 36 under ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan’s direction began on January 21 in Chennai.

Ever the first schedule wrapped up, the next leg of filming began in a massive set resembling the southern Tamil Nadu town of Ambasamudram erected at an estimated cost of nearly Rs. 3 crores.

Being produced under the Dream Warrior Pictures banner, Suriya 36 stars Suriya in the lead role and marks his first association with filmmaker Selvaraghavan.

Meanwhile, there have been reports for a while now on when the first look of the film would arrive. Some were speculating it to be unveiled on the occasion of Suriya’s birthday on July 23.

That said, Selvaraghavan took to his Twitter page moments back to officially make the announcement saying the Suriya 36 First Look would arrive on March 5.

It must be noted March 5 is incidentally Selvaraghavan's birthday and the first look coming out on the day will no doubt be a big treat for the filmmaker's fans. 

Suriya 36 also starring Sai Pallavi as the female lead is one of the most talked-about films in recent times and is coming out under huge expectations.

It must be noted actor Rakul Preet Singh also has a prominent role in the film, which has music by Selvaraghavan’s long-time confidante, Yuvan Shankar Raja.

With the date for the first look of Suriya 36 announced, the countdown now begins.
