Originally Bala had first approached Surya and his brother Karthi to do Avan Ivan, which they could not due to date problems. After few months of the film's launch, Bala has managed to bring Surya into the project, and will appear just before the climax scene in the film. Now Avan Ivan, has become hot and the first real big multi starrer in Kollywood.
Surya owes a lot to Bala who was instrumental in making him an actor to watch out for in his Nanda and latter spotted his latent comedy talent in Pitamagan.
Actor Surya has accepted the offer to do a cameo role in his favourite director Bala's Avan Ivan. Starring Vishal - Arya in the lead, the film is produced by Kalpathi S Agoram under his AGS banner.
