Suriya’s first ever supernatural thriller film Masss directed by Venkat Prabhu is gearing up for a grand month end release, simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil.
Produced by KE Gnanavelraja on Studio Greens banner, Masss / Rakshasudu stars Nayantara, Pranitha Subhash as female leads opposite Suriya.
Thanking on the success of Tamil version Yuvan Shankar Raja composed Masss audio album, Suriya has confirmed his film’s release date as May 29th in his verified Twitter page.
Meanwhile, Suriya produced 2D Entertainments presents Jyothika’s 36 Vayadhinile is slated for May 15th release.
As we reported earlier, Jyothika aka Jyo is setting the stage to make her comeback and will soon start the shooting of her next Tamil film, which is the remake of Malayalam movie ‘How Old Are You’.
Now Suriya said, “We both watched Manju Warrier’s How Old Are You together and very impressed with the script. Hence I decided to buy the remake rights. When I asked Jyothika if she can do Manju Warrier’s role, which also marks the latter’s comeback to the silver screen, Jyo took 2 days and then given her nod, since the character was showing women in such a positive highlight.”
“Jyothika will continue to act provided the script is women centric and if the role has substance.”, Suriya concluded.
Suriya will bankroll this remake venture on his 2D Entertainments banner. Rosshan Andrrews has wielded the megaphone for the original and viewers had to wait a little for more details on ‘How Old Are You’ Tamil remake…
Jyothika, wife of actor Suriya, is all set to face the arc lights after seven years with the Tamil remake of recent Malayalam hit “How Old Are You”.
The film will be produced by Suriya’s home banner 2D Entertainment.
“Jyothika is all set to return in the Tamil remake of blockbuster Malayalam movie ‘How Old Are You’ that featured Manju Warrier in the lead role,” a statement said.
“2D Entertainment has now acquired the remake rights of this film, which will be directed by Rosshan Andrrews, who helmed the original as well. The process of finalising the rest of the cast is underway,” the statement added.
Incidentally, “How Old Are You” was the comeback movie of Manju Warrier to Malayalam films after a long gap.
Jyothika, who is known for films like “Kaakha Kaakha”, “Vettaiyaadu Vilayadu” and “Manmadhan”, was last seen in 2007 Tamil film “Manikanda”.
She quit acting after the birth of her daughter Diya in 2007. Three years later, she was blessed with a boy, Dev.
Actor Suriya is popular for his kind-heartedness, his excellence in acting has opened his mouth about his real time wife Jyothika’s comeback, and his kids named Diya and Dev. Speaking to the leading magazine Suriya spilt the beans on Jyothika’s comeback to the films.
Suriya adds, “She believes that children walk in the footsteps of their parents, therefore her upbringing is with utmost care.”
Talking further about his daughter Diya, Suriya spoke that she is interested in sports and hence gets trained in gymnastics, swimming, theatre plays etc. His son Dev is passionate for painting. “He will draw about 100 pages a day.”
Suriya concluded by saying “I’m surprised at the amount of happiness I have, I’m living with it”. His current project Anjaan, is going to hit screens this Independence Day.
Suriya’s own production house D2 Entertainments will produce the new movie. There has been buzz earlier that Jyothika may maker her comeback with this film but the director informed that nothing has been confirmed.
It would take sometime for the new film to hit the floors as director Pandiraj is busy with the schedules of Idhu Namma Aalu film casting Simbu and Nayanthara in the leads and Suriya is busy with Anjaan which has Samantha as the lead lady
In a recent interview actor Suriya has revealed that his wife and former actress Jyothika still has the desire to get back to acting. He made it a point to clarify that it wasn’t his decision to keep her away from acting. But when quizzed him as to why she takes up only endorsements but not films, Suriya explains that shoot for endorsement lasts only for a couple of days and that she thinks she cannot afford spending long time in shooting spots without being there for her children. The Maatraan actor also said that his lady will come to act when she thinks that it is the appropriate time. Jyothika’s last release was Seetha Kalyanam in Malayalam.
