Actress Ritika Singh has been approached to play actor Suriya’s sister in an upcoming movie. The film’s director Muthaiah confirmed the news and said, “So, far talks have been going and the actresses have been approached but nothing has been finalised yet. It will take another week to finalise the cast.”
According to reports, the film will be an emotional drama. Like Muthiah’s previous films – Komban, Kutty Puli, Marudhu, this new film will also explore themes of love and violence in Tamilnadu’s countryside. This movie will reportedly focus on the relationship between brother and sister.
Actor Rajkiran, who previously featured in the director’s Komban, has been approached to play Suriya’s father while actress Keerthy Suresh is expected to essay the female lead in the project. Praveen KL, the editor of Kabali, and composer D Imman will join the film’s crew while Actor Soori is expected to have a major role in the film. Lyricists Vairamuthu and Pa Vijay have been enlisted to write the songs.
KE Gnanavel Raja will bankroll the project under his Studio Green banner.
