The release of Kanguva, the period movie that stars Suriya, reportedly has been delayed. The Siva directorial is touted to be a VFX-heavy film that is set in a fantasy world.
Suriya is teaming up with hitmaker Siva for his next outing in Tamil cinema. The highly anticipated project, which has been titled Kanguva is touted to be a period fantasy film. Earlier, it was revealed that the makers are keen to release the much-anticipated project during the summer of 2024, mostly in April. However, the recent updates suggest that the release of the Suriya-starrer has been postponed indefinitely.
Suriya’s Kanguva is not getting a summer 2024 release
As per the latest reports, Kanguva is not getting a summer 2024 release as expected earlier. The sources close to the project suggest that the team is planning to change the release of the Suriya-starrer to the second half of 2024 as the post-production works might not get completed by April. As reported earlier, the Siva directorial is a VFX-heavy film that demands an extensive post-production schedule. The makers are planning to take the time needed to finish the work, instead of rushing towards a fixed release date.
Suriya’s multiple looks in Kanguva
The ‘Nadippin Nayagan’ of the Tamil film industry is reportedly appearing in six unique looks in the film, which majorly revolves around a Tamil-speaking tribe that existed in the medieval ages. Suriya’s primary look in the film, which is of a ferocious warrior, had equally astonished his fans and the Tamil cine-goers. Initially, the National award-winning actor beefed up for this part in the film. Later, he shed all those extra kilos, to appear in a modern-day avatar in the Siva directorial.
