The first look poster of Suriya-Lingusamy's upcoming untitled film is expected to be revealed on 14 January, as a Pongal treat for fans.
For the first time, Suriya has teamed up with director Lingusamy, who is popular for his commercial flicks including "Sandakozhi", "Run", "Paiyaa" and "Vettai."
The film, touted as a romantic-action entertainer, will have Samantha playing the female lead. Other cast members include Manoj Bajpai, Vidyut Jamwal and Rajpal Yadav.
The yet-to-be-titled film is produced by Lingusamy's home banner Tirupati Brothers. The latest buzz is that UTV has acquired the first copy of the Suriya starrer, reported The Times of India.
Post the success of "Singam 2", Suriya was expected to start work on two Tamil films: one with Lingusamy, while the other with Gautham Menon. The film with Gautham was expected to go on floors first. But last year Suriya announced that he is backing out of Gautham's film as he did not get the complete script from the director, despite waiting for over a year.
The actor's film with Lingusamy went on floors in November 2013 and the shoot began from December. The film is gearing for a mid-2014 release but an official confirmation on the same is still awaited.
According to some reports, the film is set against a Mumbai backdrop. Suriya, who dons a bearded look, will reportedly appear as a rowdy.
The film is yet to be titled, though a few names such as "Raja Bhai" and "Mannar" were doing the rounds. The Suriya starrer will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, while cinematography will be handled by Santhosh Sivan. In a first, Sivan will be using high-end camera - "Red Dragon Digital" - for the film.
