While there has been widespread speculation as to which project Surya will give his nod to post Singam 2, sources tell that the actor has given the go ahead to director-producer Lingusamy.
Apparently, the movie will kick start in May. But an official announcement is yet to be made to this effect from either side.
It is well known that Lingusamy has been in talks with Surya for a project since last year and that he has been working on a script for him. But, last year, Gautham Menon also issued a press release stating that he had signed on Surya for a movie titled Thuppariyum Anandan. Later, Gautham told that he had written a new script for Surya.
However, there was no further development or news from Surya‘s side on this. Gautham Menon, who now finds himself in a legal entanglement, suddenly tweeted last week, “I would like to clarify. Surya has given me dates and we will announce the project very soon.We will start shoot in may.”
This caused a flutter in Kollywood as this was an unexpected development. It is well-known that Surya and Gautham Menon are close friends and sources say that the director had requested the actor to split his dates between Lingu’s flick and his. Now, it looks like Surya has decided to stick to his earlier commitment and work on only one film at a time.
