Suriya who suffered COVID-19 infection, could not attend the puja of his movie held in February. His film with director Pandiraj is being produced by Sun Pictures and it is said that the movie is having 40 actors playing important characters. Tentatively titled #Suriya40, the movie went on floors on February 15.

While Suriya produced Pandiraj’s Pasanga 2 in 2015 and did a cameo in it, this is the first time the duo is teaming up for a full-length project. Now Suriya has recovered from the infection and after taking enough rest, he is back on the sets. Sharing a photo from the movie’s set he tweeted that it feels good to be on the sets. The production house too tweeted that Suriya has started shooting for the movie.

The film has Priyanka Mohan as the heroine, and Sathyaraj is playing an important role. D.Imman composes music for the film. The movie which is said to be having both urban and rural flavours is having romantic hero-turned-villain Vinay playing the antagonist.

It was a proud moment when Suriya’a latest release, Soorarai Pottru, directed by Sudha Kongara, was selected for Oscars 2021 under multiple categories. It was the only Indian film amongst 366 films eligible for Best Picture in the Academy Awards. Unfortunately, on March 15, it was announced that the film could not get a nomination and is now officially out of the Oscars race.
