The actor is currently working on the massy Veeraputra, which will give him an image makeover
Vijay Suriya, who became a Kannada TV audience heartthrob with Agnisakshi, and then moved on to another show, Premaloka, which was, unfortunately, taken off air during the pandemic, seems set for a return to movies with a vengeance.
The actor, who had made his film debut years ago with Kavitha Lankesh’s Crazy Loka, had been focusing on his TV career, with the occasional film thrown in for good measure. Now we hear that apart from his upcoming film Veeraputra, the actor is set to sign another.
Late on Tuesday evening, the actor took to social media to post a quick video of him flipping through what a bound script of a film, which he called his birthday gift, with a promise to announce the project soon.
At the moment, Vijay is working on Veeraputra, a film that will give the actor, who is known for his chocolate lover boy good looks, a massy makeover. Directed by Devaraj, who had earlier made Supplementary, this film will see Vijay’s character in three distinct shades. A revenge drama, Veeraputra revolves around a father-son relationship and is set against the backdrop of the medical world, pitting modern medicine against traditional healing methods.
Vijay, a self-professed fan of the action genre, has been quoted as saying that he was looking at an image makeover with Veeraputra, considering that it is a hardcore commercial film with ample doses of drama and action. He is paired with Anusha Rai in the film.
It would be interesting to see what the actor has in store with his next film. Watch this space for more.
