A movie still of SJ Suryah in PR Handout

Director-turned-actor SJ Suryah is on a roll. After bagging Karthik Subbaraj's "Iraivi" and Selvaraghavan's "Nenjam Marappathillai," he has now been approached by AR Murugadoss for his next bilingual movie starring Mahesh Babu.

As per the Times of India, SJ Suryah will be playing the role of a villain in the untitled flick. It has been reported that the actor will join the shooting after the completion of his upcoming flick "Nenjam Marappathillai."

However, the actor has not signed the movie on the dotted lines yet. "It's true that we have approached the actor for a pivotal role. But things are yet to be finalised," director AR Murugadoss told the daily.

The forthcoming movie will be launched next month. The makers are yet to zero in on the name. Earlier, there were speculations that "Enemy" would be the title of the bilingual flick. But, the makers had denied the reports.

The yet-to-be-titled flick has Santhosh Sivan's music and Harris Jayaraj's music. AR Murugadoss is yet to finalise the heroine. But the buzz is that Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor has been roped in to play the female lead. The names of the other cast too have not been revealed.

It is a special movie for Mahesh Babu, who is getting ready for the release of his Telugu movie "Brahmotsavam," as it marks his debut in Kollywood. So far, the actor's films have only been dubbed in Tamil.

On the other hand, AR Murugadoss is busy with Sonakshi Sinha starrer Bollywood movie "Akira," which is the remake of Tamil movie "Mouna Guru."
