The upcoming project of Surya helmed by director Lingusamy is fast progressing in Mumbai. The film has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Santhosh Sivan will crank the lens. The film sees Samantha pairing up with Surya for the first time and Thuppakki and Billa 2 Villain Vidyut Jamwal is also acting in the film.
Now the film crew has confirmed the addition of a Bollywood actor to its star cast. It will be Talip Tahil who acted in Shahrukh Khan’s super hit film Ra one playing a vital role in this yet to be titled project.
Though this will mark the Tamil debut of the veteran actor, Lingusamy will not be the first South Indian Director to call shots for him. Tahil has acted in Aakri Rastha that was directed by K.Bhagyaraj which had Amitam Bachchan playing the lead role. It is worth remembering that Aakri Rastha is the remake of Kamalhassan’s Tamil film Oru Kaidhiyin Diary directed by veteran director Bharathiraja.
Actor Surya the modest self he is has already inspired his senior in Bollywood. “South Indian film fraternity is always known for their love and hospitality and Suriya possess all the qualities of his predecessors” says Tahil.
