Suriya: Modern day ‘Sakalakala Vallavan’?
It looks like we have ourselves our contemporary ‘Sakalakala Vallavan’, for rumor mills are working overtime that Suriya Sivakumar will be seen in the remake of this yesteryear blockbuster that had Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan essay the lead role.
It is said that when Suriya expressed his desire to remake this film through a production house, the makers of the original, AVM, refused to sell the remake rights and expressed their wish to remake the film shortly with Suriya on board!
‘Sakalakala Vallavan’ that released in 1982 saw Kamal Haasan in dual roles and was directed by SP Muthuraman and produced by AVM. The film had several hit songs and attained a cult status thanks to the novice script.
An official announcement from the makers is expected to be made shortly.
