Suriya’s horse fetches record sum

Suriya’s costar in 7am Arivu has four legs! Since Suriya plays a circus artiste in the film what could be more appropriate than a horse for a companion? Apparently this horse is a superbly trained specimen and was invaluable during the shooting. All the portions involving this animal superstar have been filmed so the team wanted to find a good place for the horse where it will be well looked after.
The horse was then put up for sale in a famous market town near Erode which has been functioning since Tipu Sultan’s reign. Many livestock used in films have formerly been sold here for outrageous prices. But Suriya’s horse which was sold for a record sum of 5 lakhs has set the bar really high. The crew members waved it off as the star horse went away with its new owners

7am Arivu to highlight upon Tamil tradition?

The story of ‘7am Arivu’, Suriya’s forthcoming film directed by A R Murugadoss, is said to be based on a time machine, that is invented by a young scientist, played by Shruthi Haasan.
“The time machine reveals various hidden truths about ancient Tamil history and tradition, even as a powerful gang is chasing the invention to snatch it away. How their attempts are thwarted (by Suriya) and how he makes the world understand and appreciate the richness of Tamil culture is what the film about,” say sources.

Produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Red Giant Movies, Suriya plays three different roles in this film, that of an aggressive monk, a scientist and a circus artist.

Music has been scored by Harris Jayaraj, who gave super hits for Suriya-Murugadoss’ earlier venture ‘Ghajini’. Grand plans are being made for the audio launch function, where Suriya is expected to perform some tricks that he was trained in for his performance as a circus artist in the film.

Surya’s 7am Arivu audio by August 20th

It was just a few hours back we have come across the audio launch date of Ajith’s much awaited film Mankatha and latest buzz is that the audio of Suriya’s 7am Arivu is also gearing up to release just with a few days gap Mankatha launch.

For all Suriya fans out there, 7am Arivu audio is all set to release in a grand manner around August 20th, 2011. The audio of 7am Arivu launch got postponed many times due to some official problems but now the filmmakers are keen to release the audio mostly before the above said date. The album has total of 6 songs including a Chinese track. The Chinese song is the special attraction of the album which was sung by mandarin singer Hau.

Suriya will be performing nearly 10 astonishing feats live on stage along with some trained circus artistes which will be a special attraction of the audio launch.

Harris Jayaraj says 7am Arivu audio in July!

At a time when there is no clear indication when audios of Mankatha and Velayudham are being launched, Harris Jayaraj has thrown a googly.
Harris tweeted- “7am Arivu will be launched by end of this month”.
This has created more suspense and anxiety in the audio world. Please note Ajith’s Mankatha, Vijay’s Velayudham and Suriya’s 7am Arivu audio are being released by the market leader Sony Music.

Earlier there were reports that Mankatha audio will release on July 18 and Velayudham on July 21. But producers of both these films are silent about the launch date. Now with 7am Arivu joining the fray it will create chaos in the audio market.

An audio dealer said: “We can’t have three big ticket audios coming out from the same company within a span of a fortnight.

All three films Mankatha, Velayudham and 7am Arivu have superstars, and if their audios hit the market around the same time, it will eat into each others business and create unhealthy competition.”
