Director Ranjith has already finalized his next film after Kabali. After directing the Superstar, he is all set to do a film with Suriya now. Interestingly, Ranjith and Suriya were supposed to team up much before Kabali went on floors. In fact, it was Suriya’s film that was scheduled to be Ranjith’s next, after Madras. However, since the director got an opportunity to direct Rajini, he put Suriya’s project on hold
Now, since the shooting of Kabali is over, and the film is set to release, Ranjith has revived the project with Suriya. The shooting of this film will begin after S3, which the actor is currently shooting for. Confirming the news to CT, Ranjith said, “Yes, my next film is with Suriya.” Meanwhile, a source says, “Ranjith is yet to narrate the full script to Suriya. But the project has been confirmed. Suriya will shoot for S3 till August, after which he will start working on Ranjith’s film, giving the director ample time to complete the scripting.”
Meanwhile, Ranjith will be venturing into production, too, this year. For his first production venture, the director plans to produce a film that will have Atharvaa as the lead. One of Ranjith’s associate directors will be directing the film.
