Suriya 42 is an upcoming high budget period 3D drama starring actor Suriya and Bollywood actress Disha Patani in the lead. Recently Disha took to her Instagram stories to update that the first schedule of the film has wrapped shooting at Goa and she was seen posing alongside film's director Siva and producer Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green to commemorate the same.
Suriya 42 is scheduled to release in 10 languages including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. The movie is also produced by UV Creations and has Devi Sri Prasad for music.
The motion poster of Suriya 42 lead to speculations that Suriya's character in the movie is inspired from a real life ancient Tamil King, who was the central character in MP Su Venkatesan's famous novel Vera Yuga Nayagan Velpari. Suriya's hint of working with Su Venkatesan during the Viruman audio launch and the physical similarities between his character and Velpari lead to these comparisons.
