Priyanka Mohan on board for Suriya 40
Suriya 40 will mark Sun Pictures' first production starring the actor, and second collaboration with Pandiraj after the Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Namma Veettu Pillai
We had previously reported that Suriya will be reuniting with director Pandiraj, after 2015's Pasanga 2, for his 40th film, tentatively referred to as Suriya 40. It is now known that Priyanka Mohan will be playing the female lead in this film.
The news was announced today via Twitter by the film's production house Sun Pictures.
Priyanka, who was seen in Nani's Gang Leader, will be making her Tamil debut in Nelson Dilipkumar's upcoming film Doctor, opposite Sivakarthikeyan. Though she has been speculated to be part of various Tamil biggies in recent times, the Suriya-starrer seems to be the second official Tamil film for the young actor.
Suriya 40 will mark Sun Pictures' first production starring the actor, and second project with Pandiraj after the Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Namma Veettu Pillai. Pandiraj and Suriya previously collaborated on Kadaikutty Singam as well, which was produced by the actor's 2D Entertainment banner.
Like Pandiraj's earlier films, Suriya 40 is also expected to be a family entertainer.
While it was earlier speculated that Suriya would wrap up Vetri Maaran's Vaadi Vasal before starting Suriya 40, it is now said that the Pandiraj film will go on floors first.
