Vignesh Shivan lost his trademark cool after he was ticked off by a tweet from an industry tracker, who suggested his latest film Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, starring Suriya in the lead role, was a flop at the box office.
Maari 2 is the sequel to Dhanush’s 2015 gangster drama, which was also directed by Balaji. Suriya’s maiden collaboration with Selvaraghavan is tentatively titled Suriya 36.
Suriya had jokes about his height in his latest film Thaana Serndha Kootam. In a much-quoted line from the movie, he says “Namma evlo uyaram endrathu mukiyam illa, evlo uyararom enbathu than mukiyam.”
There has been outrage after two VJs made distasteful remarks about Suriya’s height on their show. While the flak is warranted, we wonder why a conversation of similar intensity wasn’t sparked when women were body shamed on and off-screen.
Apart from Suriya’s Thaanaa Serndha Koottam, two other films have released on Friday. But it looks like TSK is leading the box office race.
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam movie review: Walk in without expectation and let the Suriya and Keerthy Suresh starrer’s humour entertain you. As hard as the film tries to be serious, it is tough to take it so
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is easily one of the most-awaited films of 2018. It is the maiden venture of Vignesh with actor Suriya. It is based on the opera house heist that took place in 1987.
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is being touted as a perfect festival release — a commercial entertainer. Suriya, however, reasoned that it is necessary to have a balance between commercial potboilers and experimental ventures.
After Sai Pallavi, Theeran Adhigaram Ondru star Rakul Preet has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Suriya’s 36th movie with Selvaraghavan. The film is bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures.
The leading man Suriya revealed that there will no smoking/drinking disclaimer before the film as it isn’t necessary. He also congratulated Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Vishal on their political journeys.
Selvaraghavan is currently prepping up for his long-delayed horror thriller Nenjam Marappathillai. He is also helming Mannavan Vanthanadi starring Santhanam and Aaditi Pohankar in the lead roles.
Naana Thaana Veena Pona, a fun single track from Suriya’s Thaana Serndha Kootam was launched on Thursday on the music streaming platform Saavn. The song is composed by Anirudh Ravichander with lyrics by the film’s director Vignesh Shivan.
The Filmfare awards ceremony for the south Indian film industry was organised on Saturday and the top actors from all four industries gathered to award the winners. Kirik Party, Maheshinte Prathikaram, Iruddhi Suttru and Nannaku Prematho seemed to get multiple awards.
Suriya released a single Adi Vaadi Thimiraa from his wife Jyotika’s upcoming Tamil drama Magalir Mattum, on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
