Suriya gears up for ‘Singam 2’

Singam, one of the biggest blockbusters of the year 2010, is set to have a sequel, with Suriya and director Hari again at the helm of affairs

Amala Paul, the ‘Mynaa’ girl who is currently having a superb run in Kollywood, is expected to be the female lead in the film.According to sources, “Hari is busy penning the script and the movie would hit the floors once Suriya completes Maatran, his film with KV Anand. The sequel will start where Singam ended. It will deal about the protagonist’s hunt for smugglers who use the coastal line in Tuticorin for their business activities.” They further add, “A top production house has evinced interest to fund the project. However, it may be Suriya’s cousin KE Gnanavelraja of Studio Green who would produce the movie, as he was the brain behind Singam, though the film was later sold to Sun Pictures.” Singam, which was recently remade in Hindi as Singham with Ajay Devgn playing the lead role, revolved around Duraisingam, an honest police officer. Prakash Raj who garnered a lot of praise fr his performance was the main protagonist in both the Tamil and Hindi versions.
