The release date of Suriya's S3 aka Singam 3 has been delayed by a week. Yes, it will now hit the screens on 23 December, thereby clashing with biggies like Bogan and Dangal.

The makers have announced the news through a promotional video. Along with the clip, Studiogreen, the production house, tweeted, "#S3ToRoarFrom23December ! @Suriya_offl @rajsekarpandian @shrutihaasan @Jharrisjayaraj @theindianthakur @krishoffl @ErosNow.

Now, it will lock horns with Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy-starrer Bogan. Both the screens are expected to be divided between the two movies in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

Also, S3 will be clashing with Bollywood biggie Dangal. The Suriya-starrer will lock horns with the Aamir Khan's flick in Bengaluru and in the US.

S3 is the third instalment in the highly successful Singam franchise. The first two instalments of the movie featured music by Devi Sri Prasad, and the albums turned out to be hits. Hence, expectations are high from the latest album as well.

The upcoming movie is written and directed by Hari and produced by KE Gnanavelraja. Shruti Haasan is the new addition to the cast. She plays a journalist in S3, which stars Anushka Shetty as the female lead, and Radha Ravi, Nassar, Sumithra, Janaki Sabesh, Yuvarani, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Krish and Soori in supporting roles.

The film, which will be released on December 16, features Priyan's cinematography and VT Vijay and TS Jay's editing.
