Official: Pandiraj to direct Suriya 40
After all the speculations, it has finally been confirmed that Suriya’s next film will be directed by Pandiraj. Production giant Sun Pictures is backing the project, which has been tentatively titled as ‘Suriya 40’. Pandiraj is a National award winner known for helming hit films like ‘Pasanga’, ‘Kadaikutty Singam’ and ‘Namma Veettu Pillai’. Suriya had earlier collaborated with the director in ‘Pasanga 2’. The star did an extended cameo role in it.
Though the makers are yet to confirm it, buzz is that Suriya will be playing a politician’s role in Pandiraj’s film. Last year, the actor had played a grey-shaded politician’s role in the Selvaraghavan directorial ‘NGK’. Unlike ‘NGK’, which was an abstract attempt, Pandiraj’s film is expected to be a proper commercial entertainer that appeals to all sections of the audience.

‘Suriya 40’ was supposed to do be directed by Hari next but that project seems to have been dropped as the star was not pleased with the script. Suriya has also committed for films with directors Vetrimaaran and Siva. His ambitious film ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is scheduled to premier in Amazon Prime during the Diwali weekend.
