"Suryah has been considered for the role and talks have been initiated. However, he hasn't been officially signed it yet. Suryah has already begun work on his next directorial venture, and hence, feels he won't have time to be part of this project," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Tipped to be made on a budget of Rs.85-90 crore, the project is slated to go on the floors from June onwards.
To be produced by Tagore Madhu, the makers are still on the lookout for the leading lady.
Although names of actress such as Parineeti Chopra and Keerthy Suresh have been associated with the project, none have been confirmed yet.ALSO READ: Parineeti Chopra's grand grah-pravesh: Raghav Chadha reveals who made the first move ALSO READ: Parineeti Chopra's Chooda Ceremony: A kaleidoscope of joy, traditions and family moments
