Surya and director Gautham Vasudev Menon unites after a gap of four years for Thuppariyum Anandhan. The film which Kick-started long time back had plans of roping in Kamal Hassan, later Ajith and then news also had that the crew has plans to have Vijay on board.
But now finally its Surya who has bagged the role. After playing a successful cop role in Kakha Kakha and a challenging dual role in Vaaranam Aayiram, Surya will now be playing a detective for Thuppariyum Anandhan. The film will kick start by early 2013.
Surya after completing Singham 2 ( in which he plays the police Duraisingham) and when Gautham completes Yohan with Vijay, this project will roll out states the press release from Photon Kathas.
Surya about bagging the offer said, “When Gautham and I come together, people expect romance, great songs and action.”
Gautham Menon told, “I am really excited that Suriya has come on board to do Thuppariyum Anandhan with me. This will be an action adventure in a contemporary styled period film. All cliches associated with making a period film will be broken with this effort.”
Interestingly, a theory which is doing the rounds is that Surya has always delivered hits, when he was approached for a role rejected by other heroes (read Ajith). For example, Surya's debut movie Nerukku Ner in which Surya's role was first offered to Ajith alongside Vijay and Gautham Menon's Kakha Kakha that was initially offered to Ajith & Vikram. Both films went on to become hit.
Even AR Murugadoss's Ghajini ( which kick started in the name of Mirattal), was initially offered to Ajith, who had earlier worked with him for Dheena. This movie too spelt huge success not just in Tamil but also in Hindi as well.
Well with such a theory behind it, we expect Thuppariyum Anandhan to be a hit!
