Shruti Haasan to star opposite Suriya in ‘Singham 3’


After the super-duper success of ‘Gabbar Is Back’, Shruti Haasan has signed another project. She has been roped in as the second lead actress in the third instalment of blockbuster ‘Singham’ franchise. The film has been helmed by Hari.

In ‘Singham 3’, she will be paired opposite South superstar Suriya. Anushka Shetty will be seen in the another lead role.

“Shruti is most likely to play the second lead. While she agreed to be part of the project, the paperwork is still pending. She’s expected to sign on the dotted line soon,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

Highly impressed with Shruti’s performance in ‘Poojai’, director Hari has decided to rope in Shruti in ‘Singham 3’.

“The film is expected to go on the floors in September. Anirudh Ravichander will be composing tunes, while comedian Soori has been cast in an important role,” the source said.

Earlier, Suriya starred opposite Shruti Haasan in A R Murugadoss’s ‘7 Aum Arivu’ but unfortunately the movie doomed at the box-office. Shruti who has her hands full in Bollywood also is busy shuttling between Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad to complete her projects.

‘Singham 3’ is slated to release in 2016. The music will be scored by Devi Sri Prasad while Priyan will work on the cinematography. The movie will be produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment which also produced ‘Singham 2’.
