'Suriya 42' poster: Suriya gears up for first pan-India movie
One of the top actors of Kollywood, Suriya has a huge lineup of films in different stages of production. One of them is with director "Siruthai" Siva tentatively titled Suriya 42. On Friday, the makers of the upcoming film released its motion poster, while revealing that the film will be released in 10 languages. This will mark the actor's first pan-Indian release.
Why does this story matter?
- Suriya gained nationwide fame after the release of Soorarai Pottru and Jai Bhim.
- He recently bagged the National Award in the Best Actor category for the former.
- All his upcoming projects are attracting attention.
- Director Siva's recent project Annaatthe starring Rajinikanth received negative reviews and it also tanked at the box office.
- So, this project is important to both of them.
What does the motion poster show?
What we see in the poster is a bird's eye view of what looks like a battlefield. Along with it, a fierce eagle is also seen flying, looking for something. In the end, it lands on the shoulder of Suriya, who is dressed regally as a warrior. One can only see the Jai Bhim actor's rear-view, while his face was not revealed.
