Ever since Suriya’s film with Pandiraj was officially announced by the production house late last year, there have been speculations of who will play the female lead in the movie. Among the names doing the rounds, Priyanka Mohan’s was one of them.
We have now learnt from a source in the know that Priyanka, who will be making her Kollywood debut with Sivakarthikeyan’s Doctor, indeed has been roped in for the film, dubbed as #S40.
The source says, “The film will be a rural action entertainer and the team was looking at an actress who could perform, as well as look the part. They have zeroed in on Priyanka. The pre-production work is on in full swing, and the idea is to go on floors in February. The makers are finalising the shoot locations as well, and an official announcement should be made soon.”
Meanwhile, Suriya is presently shooting for journalist-director Gnanavel’s film. “He is making an extended cameo appearance in the film. He will start Pandiraj’s movie next and the idea is to wrap up the shoot in a single schedule. Suriya also has Vetri Maaran’s Vaadivasal and a film with Siva in the pipeline,” the source informs.
