Suriya 40: Vetrimaaran’s next with Suriya titled Vaadivaasal
Recently, it was officially announced that Suriya would be teaming up with award-winning filmmaker Vetrimaaran for a new film. Kalaippuli S Thanu of V Creations is producing the film. Last day, at the Vikatan Cine Awards ceremony, it was revealed that the film has been titled as ‘Vaadivaasal’.
The film is based on CS Chellappa’s popular novel of the same name. Director Vetrimaaran had acquired the rights three years back itself. The novel is based on Jallikkattu, a famous bull taming sport in Tamil Nadu. It is said that the novel has immense potential to be made into a film. It captures the native spirit of the sport that is a very integral part of Tamil culture.
Interestingly, Vetrimaaran’s earlier films ‘Visaaranai’ and ‘Asuran’ were also literary adaptations. The director’s next film with Soori is also based on a literary work – a poem titled ‘Pattamboochi Virpavan’, penned by the late lyricist Na Muthukumar. Vetrimaaran will start working on ‘Vaadivaasal’ only after the completion of Soori’s film.
