On July 16, producer Kalaippuli S Thanu announced his upcoming film Vaadi Vaasal, starring Suriya and helmed by Vetri Maaran. The filmmakers have been snugly about the shooting schedule, but we now know that the much-anticipated film will begin production in Madurai in October. Suriya plays a bull tamer in the film, which is set against the backdrop of Jallikattu.
“Veetrimaaran has recently locked the full script of the film and has started the pre-production work too. He is targeting to take it on floors by the month of October in Madurai. The ones who have heard the script have gone ahead to term it something that has the potential of being Suriya’s best till date. In-fact, it will also be Suriya’s biggest film in terms of budget with some solid raw visuals,” Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying.
The film will be Suriya’s first collaboration with Vetrimaaran, and the director intends to cast the actor in a completely new role that is both larger-than-life and grounded in reality. Suriya will finish filming for his current project, the Sun Pictures Production, Etharkkum Thunindhavan, before moving on to Vaadi Vaasal.
