Suriya was recently a victim of body shaming.

Suriya and filmmaker Selvaraghavan have joined hands for a new project which has been tentatively titled Suriya 36. Earlier this month, the project was officially launched with a pooja and the principal shooting will begin very soon, according to sources from the film’s unit. The film marks the first-time Suriya and Selvaraghavan have collaborated. They have long desired to work together but things never fell into place. On Saturday, it was officially announced that Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music for the movie, slated to hit screens this Diwali.

While the genre of the film has been kept a secret, on a few occasions last year, Selvaraghavan hinted that the film will require extensive research work. There are also rumours that the Kadhal Kondein filmmaker has revived and made slight changes to Kaan, his shelved project with Simbu, to suit Suriya’s image in this project. Even though the makers are yet to officially confirm these reports, sources close to the production house have rubbished the rumours. Kaan was launched last year and it was even shot briefly, before being dropped for unknown reasons. Simbu was rumoured to be playing a spy in the film, which also features Taapsee Pannu in a pivotal role.

Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh have been signed as the leading ladies. To be bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures, the rest of the cast and crew of the project are yet to be finalised. Suriya will wrap up this project as quickly as possible and will soon commence work on his next project with cinematographer-filmmaker KV Anand.
