Suriya 43 (Purananooru)
Directed by: Sudha Kongara
Suriya will be reuniting with his Soorarai Pottru director, Sudha Kongara, for a film that has been tentatively titled ‘Purananooru’. The film is said to be a high-voltage political drama. An old transistor radio, a retro-style microphone and other elements in the promo hint at this.

The movie also stars Vijay Varma, Dulquer Salmaan and Nazriya Nazim.
Directed by: Lokesh Kanagaraj
Suriya's character Rolex is the most popular antagonist in the 2022 Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram. Director Lokesh Kanagaraj revealed that he will be making a spin-off film on Rolex, which will go on floors after he completes Karthi’s Kaithi 2, which is also part of the LCU franchise.
Directed by: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra
Suriya is all set to make his Hindi film debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ambitious period epic, Karna. According to reports, Suriya has been roped in to play the role of Lord Krishna, while Vijay Varma has been selected for the role of Karna, and Avinash Tiwary is set to portray Arjuna.
