Surya Sivakumar is one of the few actors whose movies work big time among non-Tamil audience. Like Rajinikanth, Kamal Hassan and Vikram, the actor too has good market in other states. Now, the Ghajini star seems to be heading towards the expansion of his base as he has been approached to act in a prestigious Malayalam movie.
Reports say that Surya has been offered to play a key role in forthcoming Malayalam movie Kunjali-Marakkar. The forthcoming movie is directed by Priyadarshan. It stars superstars Mohanlal and Mammootty in the lead roles. While the former plays the title role, the latter will be seen in the role of a warrior. It has to be noted that Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor's name was also doing rounds to play the female lead role in the movie.
However, sources say that Surya has not signed the project on the dotted line. The talks are on and the news on the same is expected to arrive shortly. The multi-starrer movie is likely to be dubbed in Tamil too.
Meanwhile, Priyadarshan has admitted that an offer is made to Surya. "We are currently busy with the discussions," the Times of India quotes the director as saying.
