Tamil superstar Suriya rolls his sleeves for some slam-bang action as his much-awaited Singam 2 goes on the floors. The first part was even remade in Hindi with Ajay Devgn in leading role.
The much-awaited Tamil film Singam 2, starring Suriya went on the floors Wednesday in Chennai on the occasion of Ganeshotsav.
Director Hari is helming 'Singam 2', which is a sequel to the 2010 smash hit 'Singam', with actors Suriya, Hansika Motwani and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles. Comedians Santhanam and Vivekh have also been roped in to provide some laughter moments.
Suriya's role as a righteous cop in 'Singam' was one of his career-best performances. The film's commercial success led to remakes such as Singham in Hindi, 'Kempe Gowda' in Kannada and 'Shatru' in Bengali.
Rohit Shetty directed the Hindi version with Ajay Devgn and Kajal Aggarwal in the main roles. The film was a box-office winner and made its way into the prestigious Bollywood 'Rs.100 crore' club.
Devi Sri Prasad has been signed on to compose music for 'Singam 2', and the composer has already stared composing tunes.
"Having fun in the studio composing for Singam 2. Suriya came and spent some time. We all had a great time," Devi tweeted recently.
Meanwhile, Suriya's upcoming Tamil film 'Mattrraan' is slated to release in October.
