Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, known for some of the biggest blockbusters in the history of Indian Cinema, has expressed his desire to work with Tamil actor Suriya.
“I hope I get to work with Suriya someday. He’s a fabulous actor and I’ve seen some of his impressive work” Hirani told reporters on Monday, at the audio launch of Tamil film ‘Irudhi Suttru’, which has been made in Hindi as ‘Saala Khadoos’.
Suriya attended the event as a special guest.
Hirani has co-produced both films, starring R. Madhavan, with S. Sashikanth and C.V. Kumar.
Directed by Sudha Kongara, the film also stars Ritika Singh and Mumtaz Sorcar in important roles. According to Sudha, it was Madhavan who was instrumental in getting Hirani on board.
“It was Madhavan who took the project to Hirani when we were facing some financial issues” she said.
In the film, Madhavan plays a boxing coach who has a reputation of being a hard task-master.
