Disha Patani, who made her acting debut with the Telugu film Loafer, has moved to Bollywood for her second project. She has been part of Hindi films like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Baaghi 2, Radhe and Malang among others. Now the actor is heading south again. Patani makes his Tamil debut in Suriya’s upcoming film with director Siva. The film, tentatively titled Suriya 42, recently premiered in Chennai.
The makers have yet to officially announce the news. However, a source close to the film unit confirmed the news to indianexpress.com. The nature of his role and other details are still under wraps.
Apart from Disha Patani, the film also stars Yogi Babu, Kingsley, Kovai Sarala and Anand Raj. Devi Sri Prasad, who has teamed up with Suriya four times for Mayaavi, Aaru, Singam and Singam II, is teaming up with the actor again for the upcoming film.
Suriya 42 marks the first collaboration between Suriya and director Siva. The director last directed Rajinikanth in Annaatthe, which, despite mixed reviews, did well at the box office. It is assumed that Suriya 42, like Annaatthe, will be a rural family drama.
Apart from Suriya 42, the Tamil star also has Vanangaan and Vaasivaasal in different stages of production. Suriya will also return as Rolex in Vikram 2 which turned out to be the biggest hit in Tamil cinema recently.
Meanwhile, Disha Patani, who was last seen in Ek Villain Returns, has Yodha, KTina, and Project K in her chat.
