Tentatively titled ‘Suriya 36’ is the most awaited film of Suriya’s career as he is on all time high with his stardom breaking the barriers and reaching different territories. ‘Thanaa Serndha Kottam’ turned out to be a massive hit in Tamil and Telugu market where it was released as ‘Gang’ and did exceptional business making Suriya a far bigger star than he ever was. Suriya 36 is being anticipated as one of his career’s biggest film being made on a scale which Suriya does not usually get and it could be a big opportunity for him to cash on.
Suriya has often mentioned that he would like to commercial blockbusters so he can go and do films that he passionately wants to and they might not have that much of a commercial value in Tamil market. Rakul Preet is going to play the female lead in this one as she has in a few Tamil films. She recently had a bad time in two different industries with highly anticipated films as Mahesh Babu starrer ‘Spyder’ in Telugu failed to make any impression on the box office and Siddharth Malhotra starrer ‘Aiyaary’ ended up being a disaster which was her first Hindi film.
First look of Suriya 36 will be released on 5 March 2018 in the evening though shooting has been going on for sometime. Makers have already completed about 20 percent of the film because they will release it on Diwali in Tamil and Telugu market. Suriya might be facing a bit of competition here with Thalapathy Vijay as his film Thalapathy 62 directed by AR Murugadoss is running with it’s shooting schedule to make sure it get a release on Diwali. Thala Ajith’s ‘Viswasam’ is also being touted as a Diwali release which means Tamil and Telugu theaters would be full and Suriya might not get as many screens.
