Another first of this film is the villain, Johny, who has landed in India for this film straight from Vietnam.
We had informed you earlier that the cinematographer of ‘7am Arivu,’ Ravi K. Chandran had to leave for attending his prior commitment to Bollywood for the cinematography of a Hrithik Roshan film that is being produced by Karan Johar. But it looks like Ravi’s stint with his Bollywood filming ended abruptly when the cinematographer had an opinion clash with the director of the film.

The next thing we know, the cinematographer joining the ‘7am Arivu’ team to continue his work here. Ravi’s coming back seems to have made the entire team happy. Suriya, a master of makeovers is touted to appear in triple avatars never-seen-before. Suriya who also learnt juggling for the film has also done some gravity-defying circus performances in the film.

Sources close to the film’s unit have suggested that the actor will be performing the stunts on stage for the music launch event of ‘7 Am Arivu.’ All these tid-bits work as boosters for the numerous fans the actor has got across the globe, who are looking forward to the film eagerly!

Who will be Suriya’s heroine?

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.
