Suriya announced it on Thursday, tweeting, “He is a person who had more belief in me that I did. He made me experience new worlds. 20 years later, with the blessings of my father (Sivakumar), I am embarking on yet another beautiful journey with Bala with the same enthusiasm.”
Director Bala, well known for his offbeat style of cinema, gave Suriya a big break and an image makeover in the 90s with his films. Since then, the filmmaker has gone on to work with many other stars, including Suriya’s wife Jyotika (Paradesi). His last outing was Dhruv Vikram’s debut offering Varmaa.
Suriya, meanwhile, is looking forward to release of Jai Bhim on Amazon Prime Video next week. He also has the Pandiraj-directed Etharkum Thuninthavan and the Vetrimaaran-directed Vaadivasal lined up.
