After Singam 2 became a super hit, Surya has become bigger in the trade with his phenomenal reach. His films are selling at a high price.
Recently Sun Pictures picked up one of his forthcoming films at Rs 15 Crore, a price given for a Vijay film and much higher than an Ajith film satellite rights.
Surya is now even more cautious in choosing his scripts. He was not happy with the script of his mentor Gautham Menon and refused to do it. Surya also decided not to do another Hari film. And Lingusamy had to re-write his script before Surya cleared it.
The actor who is a perfectionist believes that it is content that draws the audiences along with his star charisma. Now the latest we hear is that Surya has met up with Nalan Kumarasamy, the director of the path-breaking Soodhu Kavvum.
It seems Surya was very impressed with Nalan’s script sense and has also approved a one- line story the director narrated.
The buzz is that Surya wants to start this project along with the Lingusamy film. The details are being worked out.
