Tamil film icon Suriya is collaborating for the first time with director Siva for his 39th film. KE Gnanavel Raja’s Studio Green will be producing the film. The studio shared the film’s announcement on social media.

They shared a post which said: “Sai Sai. Suriya 39 Announcement. We are thoroughly elated to announce that director Siva will helm Suriya 39. Expectations skyrocketing. This is a guaranteed festival for Suriya Anna’s Anbana Fans.”

Studio Green also produced Siva’s debut Tamil film, Siruthai, which became associated with the director so much that he was called Siruthai Siva for a very long time.

The untitled film is going to be a commercial family entertainer. Post its announcement, social media is flooded with fans sharing excitement about the upcoming project.

Siva’s last release was the super-hit Viswasam which was his fourth collaboration with Ajith after Veeram, Vedalam, and Vivegam. For Suriya’s 39th film, Siva will also collaborate with long time partner and music composer D Imman with whom he had worked in Viswasam.

Meanwhile, Suriya also has a number of films lined up for release including the much awaited Selvaraghavan film, NGK, which is slated to release on May 31, 2019.
