Suriya starts filming for Kartik Subbaraj's film

~ Tipped to be a gangster drama, ‘Suriya 44’ is directed by Karthik Subbaraj and stars Suriya and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles ~

Director Karthik Subbaraj and actor Suriya have begun shooting for their next film, the yet-to-be-titled Suriya 44. On Sunday, both the actor and the director shared an intriguing promo, which gave fans a glimpse of what the film is all about. Suriya is seen sporting a retro getup in the film as he overlooks the sea in the viral promo. Going by their posts, 'Suriya 44' is tipped to be a gangster drama. Fans were thrilled to see Suriya sporting a retro look in it.

“Lights! Camera!! Action!!! #LoveLaughterWar #AKarthikSubbarajPadam Shoot in progress…” wrote Suriya, sharing the video on X (formerly Twitter). Karthik revealed that it was the first shot he took for the film.

The video begins with Suriya’s back facing the camera as he sits on a ledge with suitcases in tow and looks at the sea. As the camera zooms in, he turns out and glares before giving a sardonic laugh. Then he gestures for the camera to come closer with a menacing look on his face. In the video, Suriya is dressed in a colourful striped shirt. He sports a long mullet and fu-manchu-style facial hair.

The team commenced the film's shooting on June 2 in Port Blair in Andaman. Reportedly, the team will stay in Andaman for almost 40 days for the first schedule. Karthik also announced the rest of the cast of Suriya 44 on X. He announced that Pooja Hegde has been roped in to play one of the leads in the film. Apart from her, the film will also star Jayaram, Karuna Karan and Joju George. Suriya 44 will have music composed by Santhosh Narayanan, cinematography by Shreyaas Krishna and editing by Shafique Mohamed Ali.

Produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment and Stone Bench Films, the announcement poster of the film showed a burning vintage car. One of the trees in front of it had a heart carved on it, with an arrow piercing through. ‘Love, laughter, war’ seems to be the film’s tagline.

Suriya will soon headline Siva’s Kanguva, which will see him play a dual role. One of the roles sees him in a new look as a ruthless warrior, complete with long dreadlocks, kohl-lined eyes and scars. He will also play a cameo in Sudha Kongara’s Sarfira which will see Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
