Actor Suriya is happy for Karthi for his younger brother has teamed up with his mentor Mani Ratnam in the upcoming Tamil romantic-drama Kaatru Veliyidai. The Singam star says it could be his brother's dream film.
"My brother's dream film I can say! As an asst to Mani sir in 2003, as a hero now! So looking forward," Suriya posted on his official social media page on Friday (July 8).
Karthi started his film career as an erstwhile assistant to Mani Ratnam, before taking a plunge into acting.
In the film, Karthi is tipped to be playing a pilot, and he is paired with Aditi Rao Hydari (in the pics below). Also starring RJ Balaji in a prominent role, the film has its music scored by the Mozart of Madras AR Rahman.
The first look poster of the film was unveiled yesterday (July 7), and it managed to gather accolades from movie buffs and fans. The makers of the movie have begun shooting the first schedule in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the team of Suriya's S3, which is the third instalment in the 'Singam' franchise, has re-started shooting for the film in Vizag.
After wrapping up the first schedule of Kamal Haasan's Sabhash Naidu in the USA, Shruti Haasan returned to India to join the sets of S3.
"Back to travelling and back to sets of 'Singham 3' in Vizag," the 7aum Arivu actress posted on her official Twitter page.
Being directed by Hari and produced by KE Gnanavel Raja, the film might release on October 7th as the makers are eyeing the four-day 'Ayudha Pooja' weekend, it is said.
Post S3, Suriya will join hands with director Pa Ranjith for a commercial entertainer. Ranjith, who was supposed to work with Suriya before Kabali, had to delay the project, owing to his commitment towards the Rajinikanth-starrer.
