All is well between Suriya and Bala; don't believe in rumours: makers of Suriya 41 clarify

Suriya and Bala

We had told you Suriya and Bala were teaming up for an untitled film, after a long gap of 18 years. Tentatively titled, Suriya 41, the film went on floors in Kanyakumari, a couple of months ago. Though the team had been shooting in and around the coastal town for the past one month, on Wednesday morning, we heard there were heated exchanges between Suriya and Bala. Following this, Suriya was said to have packed up the shoot and walked out. A source, close to the production unit, tells OTTplay, "It was just a baseless rumour. Everything has been going on, as per the plan. For this schedule, Suriya was sporting a tan makeover. Even yesterday, Rajasekara Pandian clarified that the shoot was progressing smoothly."

Now that the first schedule has been completed, the team had shared updates about the second schedule, which is set to happen in Goa, for 15 days, in June. The source adds, "After the second schedule, the makers may head to Madurai, as well."

While Krithi Shetty and Mamitha Baiju have been roped as female leads, details about the rest of the cast are kept under wraps. The yet-to-be-titled film marks the 19th production of Suriya and Jyotika's, 2D Entertainment.

The big-budget film will have cinematography by Balasubramaniam and music by GV Prakash. Maya Pandi and Sathish Surya are taking care of the art direction and editing, respectively.

Further, there have been speculations that Suriya will be playing a dual role in the film. However, there is no confirmation on the same.

Suriya and director Bala collaborated on two memorable films in the early 2000s, Nandha and Pithamagan. The filmmaker, known for his offbeat style of cinema, gave the actor a big break and an image makeover in the 90s.

Bala's last directorial venture was Varmaa. The official Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy was supposed to be the launchpad for Dhruv Vikram. But, E4 Entertainment, which holds the Tamil remake rights of Vijay Deverakonda-starrer, wasn't happy with the first copy of the Bala-directed version and went ahead with a new film, titled Adithya Varma.

Gireesaya, a former associate of Arjun Reddy-director Sandeep Vanga, directed it.
