Actress Anuya would be the other ‘guest’ actor in the film.
Suriyah, who had given ‘Khushi’ to Vijay and ‘Vaali’ to Ajith, 10 years back as one of the biggest hit films in their respective careers, starred as hero in ‘New’ opposite Simran which was mired in controversies. He continued his hero avatar in failed films like ‘Vyaapari’ (opposite Tamannaah), ‘Anbae Aruyirae’, ‘Kalvanin Kaadhali’, etc.
Besides ‘Nanban’, Suryah is also said to be planning to launch a Tamil film titled ‘Isai’ in a few months’ time. Besides acting and directing the film, Suryah is also likely to make his debut as music director with this film, sources close to him say.
It is rumoured heavily in Kollywood that it was actor Vijay who spoke to Shankar to cast Suriyah in the role in ‘Nanban’ as Suriyah could be directing Vijay in a new film later this year!
