Tamil superstar Suriya's upcoming movie, which has been tentatively titled Suriya 42, is one of the most-awaited movies across the country. Even though the film is still in production, the expectations have already gone through the roof. So much so that the movie is said to have created new records in terms of pre-release business deals.
Producer KE Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green confirmed that the movie's title and release date will be announced in the next few days. The latest buzz is that the filmmakers have zeroed in on the Pongal festival. Traditionally, the footfalls see a massive spike across the southern states, including Tamil Nadu, the Telugu states and Karnataka, during the holiday of Pongal/Sankranti. And all big-star and big-budget movies vie for a release slot for this holiday. Given that Suriya 24 is being made at a high cost the filmmakers would want the most lucrative date of the new calendar year.
If the rumours are true, then Suriya 42 is set for an epic box-office clash with two other pan-India projects. Prabhas starrer Project K has announced its release date as 12 January 2024. Telugu superstar Ram Charan's untitled movie RC15 is also set to be eying for release during the same holiday.
Project K is an expensive science fiction, which is written and directed by Nag Ashwin. The movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. And composer Santhosh Narayanan is scoring the film's music.
RC 15 is written and directed by Shankar. Besides Ram Charan, the film also stars Kiara Advani, Anjali, S. J. Suryah and Jayaram.
And director Siva is helming Suriya 42. The motion poster of the movie that was released earlier caught the imagination of movie-buffs. The poster suggested that Suriya will be playing the role of a feudal warlord. The producer Gnanavel Raja earlier noted that this film will be Tamil cinema's answer to KGF 2 and RRR .
