Director Siva, who is riding high on the success of his Pongal release Viswasam, is set to direct his next film with Suriya in the lead. The movie will be produced by KE Gnanavel Raja under the banner of Studio Green.
According to reports, Suriya’s movie with Siva will begin by the end of this year. The actor, who is currently shooting the final portions of Kaappaan, also has director Sudha Kongra’s movie before moving on to work with Siva. With the new movie, Siva will fulfil the two-film deal he had signed with Gnanavel Raja during the making of the 2011 film Siruthai.

Suriya recently finished shooting for NGK, and has joined the final schedule of KV Anand’s Kaappaan.
Marking his third collaboration with the director, Kappaan will see Suriya playing bodyguard to Mohanlal’s Prime Minister character. Suriya is also joined by Samuthirakani who essays a role similar to that of Suriya’s – a security officer. It is reported that comedian Mayilaswamy will be part of the cast.
Suriya’s film with director Sudha Kongara, of Irudhi Suttru fame, will be produced by the actor’s home banner – 2D Entertainment. The movie, based on the life of Air Deccan founder GR Gopinath, is expected to go on floors soon. Lyricist Vivek will be part of the film, and had also tweeted about it. GV Prakash is reportedly the music composer of the film.
Meanwhile, Suriya will be working with director Hari for the sixth time, after Vel, Aaru, Singam, Singam 2 and Singam 3. While it was expected that the actor-director duo would collaborate for the next in the Singam franchise, it is now reported that their upcoming film is titled Yaanai, a cop drama, produced by AVM Studios.
Suriya will be seen as a senior official in the film. The makers will plan sequels if the film is successful like the Singam series.
