Now this is unexpected news indeed and will be quite the change of pace for the Singham star! If the reports are to be believed, Suriya will be teaming up with none other than director Pandiraj for this film in the works.
Pandiraj is a film maker who has a well recorded and successful history with kids films as his very first venture, Pasanga, was an epic hit and even got the young actors in the film two national awards for Best Child Artistes!
According to sources, Suriya will not just be playing a pivotal role in this flick but has faith in the subject matter enough to be producing it. Yes, the actor is rumoured to be producing the film under the banner of his company 2d Entertainment.
Suriya’s Anjaan is releasing this August 15 and the actor is currently busy with that. And Pandiraj is at present in the midst of finishing up the Simbu – Nayanatara starrer Idhu Namma Aalu.
Idhu Namma Aalu marks the reuniting of Silamabarasan and Nayanatara on screen after almost 8 years. This factor has given the movie a lot of hype by itself, and Pandiraj seems more than willing to use it for the film’s betterment.
To do this, he has apparently filmed some candid shots of Nayanatara talking to Simbu over the phone and such, and he intends to use it in one of the song sequences – or so the sources say.
The film’s music has been scored by Simbu’s brother and newcomer in to the field, Kuralarasan, and he has roped in Yuvan Shankar Raja to sing a romantic song with a western touch. The producer of the movie is the father of the star, T Rajendar himself.
The Suriya – Pandiraj project is expected to launch sometime soon after both of their current engagements wrap up.
