Suraj denies remaking ‘Pandiyan’ with AryaPublished: December 29, 2015
Director Suraj, who is popular for films such as ‘Marudhamalai’, ‘Mappillai’ and ‘Padikathavan’, has refuted reports in some sections of the media, which claimed that his next film would be a remake of Superstar Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Pandiyan’, with Arya in the lead.
“I don’t know from where such a news cropped up from. I certainly don’t have any idea of remaking ‘Pandiyan’,” says Suraj, whose last two films ‘Alex Pandiyan’ and ‘Sakalakala Vallavan’ were box-office duds.
Spilling the beans on his next venture, he says, “talks are on and a leading star would play the protagonist. It will be a totally different attempt. An official announcement will be made soon.”
Suraj started his career with Sarathkumar starrer ‘Moovendhar’ and went on to direct films such as Sundar C’s debut heroic venture ‘Thalainagaram’ etc.
