Suriya’s upcoming movie with KV Anand, Kaappaan, will feature Mohanlal in the role of the Prime Minister and Arya as his son.
As reported earlier, Suriya’s role is that of a bodyguard to the father-son duo.
Sayyeshaa plays the female lead in the movie. The supporting cast includes Bollywood actor Boman Irani, Samuthirakani and Mayilaswami. Chirag Jani plays Suriya’s friend in the film. His role was reportedly first offered to Allu Sirish, who turned down the offer because the schedule clashed with his other film ABCD.
This film is Mohanlal’s comeback to Tamil cinema after the Vijay-starrer Jilla. KV Anand worked with Mohanlal in his 1994 film Thenmavin Kombath. Directed by Priyadarshan, the movie won him the National Award for cinematography. The actor recently wrapped up his portions for the movie with Anand. He shared the news on Twitter.

Kaappaan is an action entertainer and is touted to be one of the most expensive films in Suriya’s career. Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, Kaappaan went on floors in London in June last year. The first look poster of the movie released a little after midnight on New Year’s day. It carried the line, “Your saviour might be someone’s killer.” KV Anand has collaborated with writer Pattukottai Prabhakar to script the movie.
