Suriya, the popular Tamil actor, is set to play the titular role in Karna, the upcoming period action film helmed by Bollywood director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
Suriya, the celebrated Tamil actor, is going through an excellent phase in his acting career. The National award-winner has a massive line-up of exciting projects in his kitty, including the upcoming fantasy film Kanguva, and period action drama Vaadivaasal. As per the recent updates, Suriya is now set to join hands with celebrated Bollywood filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, in his debut Hindi project Karna.
The movie, which is touted to be an out-and-out period action drama based on epic Mahabharata, will feature the Soorarai Pottru actor in the titular role. Now, the recent grapevine suggests that Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor has joined the star cast of Karna.
If the recent updates are to be believed, Suriya is set to romance popular actress Janhvi Kapoor in the upcoming Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial. The grapevine suggests that the Devara actress is already in talks to play the female lead in the film, but she has not signed the dotted line. If things fall in place, the young actress might come on board for the project very soon. However, things will be confirmed only after the makers officially launch the project.
