Suriya, undoubtedly is Kollywood’s number one hero at the moment. He has just completed the shoot of his AR Murgadoss directed 7am Arivu, in which Sruthi Haasan is his heroine.Suriya will start work for his next film Maatran directed by KV Anand and produced by AGS. The shoot of the film will start by the first week of June.Now the big question being asked is: “Who will be the lucky girl to be featured opposite Suriya?”It is a million dollar question and a lot of heroines from all over the country have thrown in their hat.
Remember being Suriya’s heroine you get a fantastic reach and fame. Ask Tamannaah who after being paired with Suriya in KV Anand’s Ayan reached dizzy heights.
Similarly Shruthi Haasan is all set to storm K’wood once 7am Arivu releases.
As of now as per the Kollywood grapevine, those who have been selected in the preliminary list are- Deepika Padukone, Kajal Agarwal, Taapsee and Samantha.
Deepika has asked for a very high salary, and negotiations are going on.
However the heroine with a realistic chance of grabbing the role is Kajal Aggarwal, who has emerged as the front runner. The Maghadheera girl has a reach in Andhra where Suriya has an audience and will be a star in Bollywood after doing Hindi Singam with Ajay Devgan. The only thing going against her is her not so impressive progress card (hit movie) in Tamil cinema.
The others are also trying to get this coveted role opposite the hot and happening Suriya.
One of the roles Suriya playing in ‘7am Arivu’ is that of a Buddhist Monk. The other two characters are a scientist and a circus artist. The film will create ripples once it hits the screens.These are the latest three things we hear about the multicrore-multilingual venture, directed by A R Murugadoss and produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Red Giant Movies.
“The movie, with enough evidence, will reveal some secrets about the origination of Kung Fu and other martial arts. It will also talk about ancient relationship between India and China,” say sources.
With Shruthi Haasan playing the heroine, ‘7am Arivu’ is said to be a scintillating thriller which will travel between the present era and Pallava period. “Suriya has given his heart and soul to the film,” sources add.
After taking audiences on a laughter ride with the hit series ‘Golmaal’, director Rohit Shetty is returning to action-thriller with the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster hit ‘Singam’.The Suriya-starrer’s Hindi version too is named ‘Singham’ and has Ajay Devgn as a police officer along with southern star Kajal Aggarwal. The film will have Maharashtra as its backdrop.
The director has teamed up with composers Ajay-Atul, a regular in Marathi films. ‘Singham’ will hit the screens on July 22.
