Tamil superstar Suriya who is working for the first time with filmmaker Venkat Prabhu in forthcoming horror-comedy Masss, says he loves how Venkat presents his actors in out-of-the-box subjects.
"Venkat's penchant for out-of-the-box stories has always impressed me. I also love the way he presents his actors in his films, as they've always been very realistic. Masss has portrayed me in two completely different avatars," said Suriya.
"Venkat and I had initially planned to work in a love story. But as Venkat and co. managed to give this story a twist, I really liked the final output," he said.
The film is about a conman who is taken for a ride by someone who's not a normal human being.
"It has all the commercial elements, yet it's not your regular hero versus villain film. There's something very special about it and that credit goes to Venkat," he said.
The film, which is slated for worldwide release on May 29, also stars Nayanthara and Pranitha Subhash.
It will have a simultaneous release in Telugu in which it's titled Rakshasudu.
Suriya is currently busy shooting for Tamil action-thriller 24, while he awaits the release of his maiden production 36 Vayadhinile, starring his wife Jyotika.
Suriya is happy for his wife, who is making a comeback after eight years.
"We're all excited about the movie. It's a movie for the society, especially for women who give up on their dreams. Jyotika is glowing on screen," he added.
Meanwhile, his second production venture Haiku, a Tamil children's film, will also release soon.
