Some say that it is just a strategy to get people involved into the 'tweet debates' over the title. However, many on social networking sites do not like to see a change in the title as "Singam" is the most successful franchise in Kollywood. The cine-goers want to see them in the third instalment rather than a different flick.

Nonetheless, Suriya and Hari's movie title might go for a change if they are collaborating for a fresh subject, say reports. Meanwhile, the fans are ready to welcome the first look. They are using a few hashtags to create trends on social networking sites. The official hashtag used to generate buzz is #SuriyaHariCombo.

Coming back to "Singam", the first instalment redefined Suriya's mass avatar and his character of cop Durai Singam was highly successful. He sported handlebar moustache in the two instalments, which had Anushka Shetty in the female lead role.

In the latest movie, Shruthi Haasan is reportedly playing the female lead. The movie was supposed to take off in November. But unprecedented rain in Chennai changed the plans. The attempt to begin the first schedule in Kolkata was also cancelled due to bad weather conditions.

The regular shooting reportedly begins from 7 January in Vizag.
