Suriya was last seen in director Sudha Kongara Prasad's Soorarai Pottru. The film, which was meant to release in theatres last year was forced to skip theatrical release due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The film directly streamed on Amazon Prime Video and received an overwhelming response from the critics and audience alike. Recently, Suriya recovered from the novel coronavirus and began shooting for his upcoming film with director Pandiraj. He has been shooting for the film for the past one month along with Priyanka Arul Mohan and Sathyaraj.
