Here is some interesting news for Suriya fans. The actor is reportedly playing dual role in his upcoming film "Anjaan."
The news has been confirmed by the film's director Lingusamy. In an interview to Boxofficeindia, Lingusamy has revealed that Suriya is playing double role in "Anjaan" and also stated that both the characters will be very stylish.
"Anjaan" is Lingusamy's first film with Suriya. While sharing about his experience of working with Suriya, Lingusmay told the website that he had a great experience working with the "Singam 2" star as he is a dedicated actor.
Revealing about the film and Suriya's role, the director said, "In my film, "Anjaan," Suriya plays a gangster from the Mumbai underworld and we have styled him in a very stylish avatar. This is the first time he will be playing a double role in which both the characters are stylish."
