Actor Suriya and director Siva’s upcoming period fantasy film, Kanguva, is expected to be released in theatres in the second half of 2024
Kollywood star Suriya has been teasing fans with small updates from his upcoming period fantasy, Kanguva: A Mighty Valiant Saga. However, the actor has been keeping a tattoo at public events and fans are curious to see the star’s body ink for the film. All that is set to change, as in a recent photoshoot, the Jai Bhim star can be seen flaunting his tattoo. The photograph has been going viral on social media, with users going gaga over the actor’s physique and new look. Check out some of the reactions from X users:
Suriya is seen flaunting a tattoo on his arm, which he has been hiding from the media for a long time. The actor also has a heavy beard and looks like he underwent an intense physical transformation. Interestingly, this isn't the first time the Tamil actor has had tattoos for his roles. The actor was last seen sporting a scorpion tattoo on his neck for his role as Rolex in the Kamal Haasan and Lokesh Kanagaraj LCU film Vikram. Suriya’s looks in his films have been fan favourites because of the effort that he puts into them. Like Rolex, will Suriya's Kanguva impress fans with his performance and story, or will it only appeal because of his physical appeal?
The actor who has been undergoing several different transformations, will be seen in a more muscular look for Kanguva. In contrast, he has had to slim down to play a college student in Sudha Kongara's Suriya 43.
Directed by Siva, Kanguva was slated to be released in theatres in the summer of 2024. However, it is now being speculated that the movie’s release has been shifted to the second half of 2024, as the post-production work might not finish by the summer of 2024.
Kanguva is set 1,500 years ago and is based on an imaginary world with elements from ancient Tamil culture as well as other cultures from all across India.
Bobby Deol is set to play the antagonist and Disha Patani plays the female lead in the movie. Actors Kovai Sarala, Jisshu Sengupta, Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley, Natarajan Subramaniam, Anand Raj, Ravi Raghavendra, KS Ravikumar, Deepa Venkat and others will be seen in supporting roles. Devi Sri Prasad has scored the music for the film, while Vetri Palanisamy is the cinematographer. The period fantasy film is jointly bankrolled by Studio Green and UV Creations.
