The director is currently busy penning the script of the forthcoming film. Reports say that as the Hindi version of Vettai has been delayed due to unavailability of Shahid Kapoor's dates, Lingusamy has decided to start his next film in Tamil for which he has approached Surya.
Currently, the talks are in initial stages and Surya has reportedly given his verbal consent to act in the film. The project is expected to take off once the Ghajini star wraps up his much-hyped Maatraan. It is also said that Lingusamy might opt out of Vettai remake if it is delayed further.
