The maiden collaboration of Suriya and filmmaker Selvaraghavan has been officially titled NGK, with its abbreviation as Nanda Gopalan Kumaran.
In posters Suriya resembles widely popular leader and revolutionist Che Guevara. The industry grapevine is that the film could be a political drama.
Lately, there has been a lot of buzz around NGK, Suriya’s upcoming film with director Selvaraghavan. The film is produced by Dream Warrior Pictures and has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Recently, there were reports about Selvaraghavan’s health and that the film’s shooting was on hold for a few days. But on the bright side of things, the team has resumed the shoot and are back on track.
The film, which was officially launched last month, also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi as the leading ladies. Being produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the project is gearing up for Diwali release.
The team has already wrapped up the first schedule of shooting. Recently, on a lavish budget of over Rs 3 Crore, the makers recreated a set of the town of Ambasamudram. The entire second schedule will be shot in this set, which according to the team, will be one of the highlights of the project.
The genre of the film is being heavily guarded. Despite rumours doing the rounds that the film could be a revived version of Selvaraghavan’s Kaan, which was launched in 2016 and dropped subsequently. However, sources close to the makers have rubbished the reports and clarified that the team is working on a fresh subject.
It was recently revealed that Suriya’s project won’t be a simple film and it requires lot of research. Selva, in an interview last year, revealed that he had plans to work with Suriya soon after Kadhal Kondein, and the dream has been finally fulfilled after a decade.
Meanwhile Fans of Surya in twitter expected a lot for the film to release on the day of Diwali regarding which they kept on asking about an update to the producer by tagging him in twitter.
To their shock the producer S.R Prabhu yesterday tweeted an update in which he reported about the delay of the film and he also confirmed that the film will not be released on Diwali day which spread a deep hatred against him among Surya fans. The update said “We are working hard to achieve the best and deliver the same to you at the earliest. This may take a little longer than expected…than projected, so we will be bring it to you post Diwali. We will soon release the updated release plan. We seriously thank each and every one of you for the continued love and support.”
