The actor turned 36 on July 23
Suriya brought in his birthday on the sets of his latest venture Maatraan. The actor, who turned 36 this year, began shooting for Maatraan the same day. Till now, he was busy finishing Murugadoss’ 7am Arivu, which features Shruti Haasan as the heroine. Maatraan features Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead opposite Suriya. Harris Jayaraj will compose music of the film, while director KV Anand will be at the helm.
There are several speculations over Suriya’s role in the film. There is a widespread belief that Suriya will play a unique double role of conjoined twins who will do everything – from daily chores to fighting villains – together in the flick. Another rumour is that Maatraan is set against a rural backdrop with villagers being the prime characters. The film, which is expected to hit the theaters in April 2012, is also the second venture for KV Anand-Suriya duo, who collaborated on the superhit Ayan two years back.
