Suriya’s next with ‘Irudhi Suttru’ fame Sudha Kongara is a period film?
We had earlier reported about Suriya teaming up with Sudha Kongara of ‘Irudhi Suttru’ fame. This movie, tentatively titled Suriya 38, is reportedly shaping up as a period flick. Composer-turned-actor GV Prakash, who has been signed as the music director for this movie, was the first to hint about it.
In a recent interview, GVP said that Suriya 38 will be one of the most important films in Indian cinema and will be on lines to something like Aayirathil Oruvan, music for which was also composed by him. The actor’s are highly excited with this news.
Sudha Kongara, a former associate of Mani Ratnam, shot to fame with her movie Irudhi Suttru, which was released in 2016. The movie starring Madhavan and Ritika Singh was a bilingual made in Tamil and Hindi (Saala Khadoos). Sudha also remade the movie in Telugu as Guru with Venkatesh reprising Madhavan’s role. All three versions were critically and commercially successful.
Sudha has already proven her mettle as a filmmaker and naturally expectations are high for her movie with Suriya. She has been working on this project for sometime now. More details regarding its genre and other cast and crew members are expected to be announced later. Suriya’s own banner 2D Entertainment is funding this movie.
Suriya meanwhile is busy working on NGK, which is nearing completion. He will be then joining the sets of KV Anand’s movie which is being funded by Lyca Productions. His movie with Sudha Kongara will start rolling next year after he wraps up his prior commitments.
