Now that actor Suriya is done with his bit in the upcoming Tamil film 24, the actor was to begin shooting for Tamil actioner Singam 3. The shoot was to begin last week in Vishakhapatnam but has been delayed indefinitely due to the grave situation caused by heavy rainfall in Tamil Nadu.

“The shooting had to be called off due to the rains. Furthermore, Suriya sir was stuck in Indonesia last week as he couldn’t return to the city because of the bad weather. Hence, we decided to postpone the shoot,” said a source from the film’s unit.

Not sure about when the film will go on floors now, the source said it might take a while.

“Everybody is busy volunteering, including Suriya sir, whose house here was inundated with knee-deep water. This may take a few weeks or even months,” the source said.

To be directed by Hari, the film is the third part in the highly successful Singam franchise.
