Following superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film 2.0 and Suriya’s latest film 24, there has been a clamour among Tamil film-makers to title their new films not with words but by using mere numbers. It turns out that Pa. Ranjith’s next directorial venture, which would star Suriya in the lead, has been tentatively titled as 5.35.
Ranjith’s latest film Kabali, which has superstar Rajinikanth and Radhika Apte in the lead, released in theatres worldwide last Friday and has been rocking theatres with un precedented collections. Though he is basking on the glory of the film’s success, Ranjith has been kept busy by critics who have been hurling various questions at him on the film’s script, style of narration, etc.
Ranjith, however, has already started work on his next directorial venture which would have Suriya essaying the lead role of a boxer. It is said that the script of the film was conceived by Ranjith when was making Madras in 2014 which starred Suriya’s brother Karthi in the lead. Though Ranjith was to start work on Suriya-starrer last year itself, it got postponed as he got the tempting offer to direct none other than Rajinikanth in Kabali.
Titled as 5.35, the film would have Suriya in the lead. A formal announcement about the launch of the film is to be made shortly once the crew finalizes the heroine(s) and other cast members and technicians to work in the film. Suriya’s upcoming film, in the meantime, will be S3 by Hari (the third film on the Singam sequel).
