Four villains in ‘Maatraan’ – Suriya against Suriya!

There are a total number of four villains in Suriya’s forthcoming venture ‘Maatran’ and one among them, interestingly, is Suriya himself. The other three are Milind Soman, Daniel Balaji and Veera of ‘Nadunisi Naaygal’ fame!
“If one would closely look at the three names, they could find a Gautham Vasudev Menon link. While Milind Soman is the baddie of ‘Pachaikili Muthucharam’, Daniel is that of ‘Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’, and Veera was part of ‘Nadunisi Naaygal’,” point out sources.

“This is because of Suriya’s close rapport with Gautham. Both are good friends and had worked together in ‘Kaakka Kaakka’ and ‘Varanam Aayiram’. Suriya, who was impressed with the performance of the three actors, wanted them to cross swords with him in Maatraan,” add sources.

Directed by K V Anand, the film which has Kajal Aggarwal opposite Suriya is produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram of AGS Entertainment. Shooting is almost over and Anand is planning to release the movie during summer.

Suriya’s Maatraan new look

That Suriya doing five characters in ‘Maatraan’ is no more a secret. But the news is that one among them would feature him in a totally different look, which has been kept under wraps by director KV Anand.
“Suriya and Anand were recently in the United States and consulted with make-up coordinators there to design the new look. After taking into consideration five to six designs, they zeroed in on one,” chirps a little birdie.

70 per cent of the shooting is over so far and the remaining is expected to be completed in two months. “Anand is planning to release the movie for Tamil New Year or May Day to cash in on the summer vacation,” the source adds.

Being produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram of AGS Entertainment, ‘Maatraan’ is touted as a sci-fi thriller. Kajal Aggarwal is playing Suriya’s interest and some important parts of the movie were shot in Russia. Music is by Harris Jayaraj.

Suriya not to introduce flag for fan club

“While I understand that fans are very very important to the growth of any actor, I don’t see any need to increase the number of fan clubs by introducing a separate flag or doing other things. I want to do different things in films alone,” said Suriya.
The actor was speaking to journalists in Chennai on Monday afternoon, regarding his recent release ‘7aum Arivu’. “There are mixed reviews for the film. But still it is huge success,” he said, adding: “I take positive and negative feedback with the same spirit.”

“Many ask whether Bodhidharman is really a Tamilian. Intense research was done by director AR Murugadoss before we commenced shooting for 7aum Arivu. So I don’t want to go further into that topic,” said the actor, who had played a Buddhist monk and a circus artiste in the movie.

On his forthcoming film ‘Maatraan’, directed by KV Anand, he said, “I feel gifted to bag such a role. It is no easy thing for any actor to do such a character. And I am happy to work with Anand after the super hit Ayan. Maatraan will be a complete commercial treat.”
