Grapevine has it that Siruthai Siva, whose latest outing was Rajinikanth's Annaatthe, which turned out a dud at the box office, met Thalapathy Vijay at his residence. Naturally, speculations are abuzz that the Viswasam filmmaker would team up with the actor. While we don't know if Vijay has given his nod, unconfirmed reports suggest that Siva had been asked to develop the story. If Vijay agrees to headline the film, this will mark his first collaboration with Siva.
The cinematographer-turned-director has directed Ajith Kumar in Veeram, Vedalam, Vivegam and Viswasam. Also, hearsay is that Siruthai Siva was bouncing off ideas with Sivakarthikeyan, a couple of years ago. However, things did not materialise.
Last year, it was announced that Suriya would be collaborating with Siva. Suriya himself had confirmed, in an interview, that the film was on the cards. Eventually, reports were published saying Anirudh Ravichander was roped in to score music for the film, as well. However, the music composer's involvement in the project is yet to be officially announced by the makers. Tentatively referred to as Suriya 39, it was expected that work for this one would begin post-Annaaththe release. But for now, there's no information on when Suriya 39 will begin.
Siva is a regular collaborator with Ajith. In an interview, the director had said, given the terrific actor and person that Ajith sir is, he'd love to keep working with him. “I’ve done four films with Ajith sir. I'm always a call away, and he knows it, too,” he added.
Siva, further, said that both he and Ajith share a great respect for each other’s work. “I don’t know if I’m talented, but I can vouch for my obsession with work, with seeing on screen what I put on paper,” he had told Cinema Express.
On the other hand, Vijay is expected to be joining hands with Lokesh Kanagaraj for the second time on Thalapathy 67. Currently, the actor is focused on his untitled film with Vamshi Paidipally.
