Director Shankar who made films like Indian, Shivaji and Robot is planning to make a film with Surya in the lead. It is for the first time the director and the actor are working together.
Shankar is said to be busy scripting the film which will be produced by Aascar Films.
Surya, who acted in the films directed by Gautam Menon and AR Murugadoss, will be seen in a big budget film directed by Shankar. The actor’s films Ghajini, Singham and 7th Sense were a big draw. He is presently starring in KV Anand’s Maatran.
