Film producer Guneet Monga, who won the Oscar for her short film “Period, the End of Sentence” is heading south for her next film. Making inroads into the southern Indian film market with Tamil hero Suriya , Monga’s movie is yet to be titled.
Monga has announced that she will collaborate with a top star down south.
She has been signed for Tamil star Suriya Sivakumar’s next, which will be helmed by Saala Khadoos director Sudha Kongara. Monga took to Twitter to announce her association.
“Our first Tamil film producing with Aalif Surti, Sriram, Achin Jain and Sikhya Entertainment. Very excited for this. Directed by rockstar woman Sudha Kongara (sic),” she tweeted on Monday.
Currently dubbed as Suriya, 38, the film will be co-produced by Monga along with 2D Entertainment. Suriya’s fans were obviously delighted at the fact that an Oscar-winning filmmaker will be collaborating with the star.
Netizens wished Guneet and were thrilled to know that she will soon be associated with the Tamil film industry.
The film will be based on the inspiring real-life story of GR Gopinath. The shoot for the film is expected to begin soon after Suriya wraps up KV Anand’s Kaappaan.
Suriya is busy wrapping up K.V. Anand’s Tamil action thriller ‘Kaappaan’, in which he plays a bodyguard to Prime Minister, being essayed by Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. Suriya 38 will most likely go on the floors in last week of March or April.
G.V. Prakash Kumar has been roped in to compose music for the project, which will mark the maiden collaboration between Suriya and Sudha.
