Suriya declines to participate in Bala’s directing of Vanangaan; the director says the movie will go on without the actor

For the upcoming movie Vanangaan, Suriya and director Bala reconnected after a ten-year separation. Since the movie’s first announcement earlier this year, there have been high expectations for it. It has now been revealed that Suriya declined to participate in the movie. Yes, the actor won’t be a part of Vanangaan, director Bala announced in a statement.

Director Bala noted in a statement issued on Sunday night, “My younger brother, Suriya, and I wanted to direct Vanangaan, according to Bala’s official statement. I wasn’t sure, though, if the project was appropriate for someone like him after some alterations to the story. Suriya had complete faith in me, but it was my responsibility as an older brother to prevent him from getting into such a precarious situation, he said. Therefore, Suriya and I have concluded that it would be best for everyone if he opted out of the project. Suriya was actually very upset about this choice, but it was made for the benefit of my brother.”

Bala also declared that he would eventually team up with Suriya again. The Suriya that I saw in Nandha and the Suriya that you saw in Pithamagan will undoubtedly meet up at the appropriate time. The continuation of Vanangaan sans Suriya was also confirmed by the director. Following this, it remains to be seen who will play the new lead actor in Bala’s film.

Suriya’s 2D Entertainment, which served as the production umbrella for Vanangaan when it was first announced, will no longer finance Bala’s movie either. The movie’s female protagonist is played by Krithi Shetty, and GV is working as the soundtrack composer.
