At the audio launch of the film Biriyani, producer KE Gnanavel Raja revealed that soon he is going to make a direct Telugu film with Suriya in the lead. He also said that they are trying to rope in a top Telugu director for this film and an announcement would be made shortly. This announcement has opened a Pandora’s Box among the fans as it has resulted in numerous names as possible contenders for the director.
The top names that are on everyone’s mind are director’s Puri Jagannadh and Bhaskar. These two directors’ at some point of time have openly expressed about directing Suriya or have been attached with a project with the actor. Remember Businessman which was initially announced with Suriya in the lead. Keeping this is mind fans have already made up their mind but one has to wait and see if these are the names in the mind of producer as well. If Suriya indeed does the film, it would be his second straight film in Telugu after Raktha Charithra-2.
