Some time back, it was reported that director Venkat Prabhu narrated a script to ‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Haasan soon after delivering a hit with Ajith’s Mankatha. It was also reported that Kamal was mighty impressed with what he heard and had assured Prabhu that they would work together in future.
However, it now turns out that Venkat Prabhu’s next directorial venture would be starring Suriya in the lead and would be produced by Studio Green, run by Suriya and Karthi’s uncle Gnanavel Raja. When the information that Venkat would be making a film for Studio Green leaked, it had almost been confirmed that either Suriya or Karthi and no other hero would be playing in the lead role.
Now, it appears that Venkat has decided to cast Suriya as the hero of the film. Suriya is presently shooting in Italy for some action sequences as well as to shoot a song sequence for his upcoming film Maatraan directed by K.V. Anand. As soon as Suriya returns home before the end of this month, a formal announcement is likely to be made about the film which would bring together Venkat and Suriya for the first time.
After getting appreciation from the fans, movie-goers as well as the print and television media for his role in his latest film 7am Arivu, Suriya is only too keen to sustain the momentum and continue to deliver hit films. Taking it easy, Suriya doesn’t appear to be in a hurry to complete his ongoing projects and leaves it to the concerned directors.
It is also rumoured that Tollywood’s Ravi Teja might play a significant role in the film to be directed by Venkat Prabhu.
