Teaming up for the first time, the duo has already set the anticipation bar high and audiences are eagerly looking forward to the film.
While Rakul Preet Singh was originally considered for the leading lady’s role, it has now been learnt that the project may also feature Sai Pallavi in the lead. Reports suggest that the film will have two female leads, and both will be paired with Suriya, who will be seen in a brand new avatar.
Last seen in Karthi’s Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, it is believed that Rakul was signed on for the project a while ago. Dream Warrior Pictures, the company that produced Theeran, is also bankrolling the Suriya-Selvaraghavan project and they’ve said to have signed Rakul for a two-film deal.
Sai Pallavi is said to be the latest addition as she’s currently the toast of the town after a huge success with Telugu film Fidaa this year and signing Dhanush’s Maari 2. Pallavi is yet to officially sign the dotted line but reliable sources have confirmed that she’s already given her nod.
The regular shooting of the project will commence from March 2017, and in the interim Selva will complete his project with Santhanam.
It was recently revealed that Suriya’s project won’t be a simple film and it requires lot of research. Selva, in an interview earlier this year, revealed that he had plans to work with Suriya soon after Kadhal Kondein, and the dream has been finally fulfilled after a decade.
Suriya, it is believed, after Selva’s project might team up with Gautham Menon. According to reliable sources, Gautham and Suriya had planned to work together soon after Singam 3. However, due to a prior commitment to Vignesh Shivan, he had to work start working on Thaana Serntha Kootam, which is gearing up for release.
