Suriya to produce his next with Sudha Kongara of Irudhi Suttru fame
Suriya has been through a rough patch over the last few years. He is now being more selective and trying to take up movies that offer him scope for performance. His next release is Thaana Serntha Koottam, directed by Vignesh Shivan. Besides that he has committed for two other projects, with Selvaraghavan and Irudhi Suttru fame Sudha Kongara.
Selvaraghavan is busy scripting the movie, which he calls his dream project. In a recent Twitter interaction with his followers, he said that he has never enjoyed scripting a movie like this before. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Suriya will be producing his next with Sudha. It is still not clear which of the two films will go on floors first.
Apparently, Suriya was highly impressed by Sudha’s script and has decided to produce it under his own banner 2D Entertainment. Sam CS, who made an outstanding debut with Vikram Vedha has been roped in as the composer for this movie. An official announcement regarding the project is expected to be made very soon.
Sudha Kongara, an erstwhile associate of ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam, won widespread appreciation for her movie Irudhi Suttru, released last year. The movie starring Madhavan and Ritika Singh in the lead roles was a bilingual made in Tamil and Hindi (Saala Khadoos). It was a huge commercial success and also won several awards at the 64th National Film Awards. Sudha also remade the movie in Telugu as Guru with Venkatesh reprising Madhavan’s role. She has proved her ability as a filmmaker with Irudhi Suttru and naturally expectations are high for her movie with Suriya.
Meanwhile, Suriya’s Thaana Serndha Koottam is nearing completion and is expected to hit screens by the end of this year.
