Maatraan bags U; release on October 12

The most awaited film of the season Maatraan starring Suriya and Kajal Agarwal in the lead roles has cleared its censor formalities and acquired the clean U certification.

The big budget action entertainer produced by AGS Entertainments is now set for a grand release worldwide on October 12 in more than 1000 screens along with its dubbed Telugu version titled Brothers. There has been buzz that the Eros entertainment has purchased the film for a whopping Rs 85 Crores.

Suriya played siamese twins in the film in this out and out entertainment extravaganza. KV Anand wielded the megaphone for the film and Harris Jayaraj composed musical scores had already earned good response from the audiences.

Surya with 500 dancers


Actor Surya along with Kajal Agarwal and 500 dancers is shaking a leg for a peppy romantic number for ‘Maatraan‘ in the scorching heat of Jodhpur. The team is shooting in a high temperature of 41 degrees in the desert.

The film that was initially slated for a summer release saw an indefinitely delay thanks to a tussle between FEFSI and TFPC.

‘Maatraan‘ is a high voltage action entertainer that brings back to big screen the hit combination of KV Anand, Surya and Harris Jayaraj who earlier delivered blockbuster ‘Ayan‘. This film has Kajal Agarwal as the lead lady.

‘Maatraan‘ that has some stunts captured with performance motion capture technology is touted to see Suriya in more than one dimension, with both positive and negative shades.

Suriya’s Maatraan shooting in Wai


Suriya is in news again with his Maatraan directed by K.V.Anand, the high budgeting movie ever in his career. The Ayan star is shaking legs with Kajal Agarwal, in director’s favourite place Wai, near Pune.

Maatraan team is exclusively shooting a romantic song in this prettiest place with Suriya and Kajal shaking legs. Wai is one of the most beautiful places in India that includes Mahabaleshwar, Dhom Lake, Krishna River and valley. Remember Wai was seen in Superstar Rajinikanth’s Sivaji directed by Shankar and Anand worked as cameraman for that film.

Kalpathi S Aghoram producing Maatraan is being a trustworthy film, as the makers are specially using performance capture technology for some of the action sequences. Harris Jayraj is composing music for this film, with duo expecting a hattrick after their combo in Suriya’s Ayan and Jeeva starrer KO.

Suriya to dub on his own in Telugu

That ‘Maatraan’ would hit the screens in Telugu as ‘Duplicate’ is no more news. But the news is that Suriya would personally dub for the film! “Yes, I will speak on my own for my character. I am thrilled about it,” he says.
In a lighter vein, he says, “My younger brother Karthi is already dubbing on his own in Telugu and films like Aawara (Paiyaa) have fetched him good name. I am sure I will beat him by personally dubbing for Duplicate.”

Expressing gratitude to Telugu audience for their support to his family, Suriya said, “It is great news that movies starring me and Karthi are expected in Andhra Pradesh. We are thankful to the overwhelming patronage here.”

On ‘Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi’, the Tamil version of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ which is currently hosting on Vijay TV, Suriya said, “I was bit nervous since this is my first television show as an anchor. But things are cool now.”

Surya’s Maatraan shooting restarted


Surya’s upcoming film Maatraan under the direction of K V Anand was halted by technicians due to salary revisal issue. Today Maatraan’s song shoot restarted at Ramoji Film City. A short meeting between AGS Entertainment and FEFSI resulted in a compromise and FEFSI have agreed that they will not create any barriers for the shoot from the moment.

Kajal Aggarwal is playing female lead role in the movie. Vivek is playing an important role in the movie. Maatraan is based on present day story with perfect blend of action thriller. KV Anand is directing the movie and Harris Jayaraj is composing music. AGS Entertainment is producing the movie. The movie is scheduled to hit big screens on June 2012
