Suriya is now making his entry into Bollywood as well as a producer as his company 2D Entertainment will be producing the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru, with Akshay Kumar in the lead opposite Bhumi Pednekar. It was recently revealed that the actor also has a cameo in the Hindi version, which is rumoured to be titled Start-up.
He recently opted out of Bala’s Tamil film Vanangaan. Suriya and Bala were all set to work together for the third time in Vanangaan. They had reunited after two decades and the project had recently gone on the floors. However, Suriya had opted out of the project over mutual agreement. Filmmaker Bala said that he had doubts over the story whether it'll be suitable for Suriya after making some minor changes.
“I wanted to direct a movie called Vanangaan with my brother Suriya. But due to some changes in the story, I now have doubts whether this story will be suitable for Suriya. He has full faith in me and in this story. It is my duty as a brother to not cause any embarrassment to my younger brother who has so much love, respect and trust. So, both of us have discussed and unanimously decided that Suriya will withdraw from the movie. It was a decision he made in his best interest, although he was saddened by it,” Bala said in a statement.
