Dhanush to replace Suriya in Sudha Kongara’s film?

Two young stars have been roped in for the lead roles of Sudha Kongara’s next directorial, Purananooru.

It has been reported that Dhanush and Sivakarthikeyan will be playing the characters that were earlier confirmed to be committed by Suriya and Dulquer Salmaan.

Sources claim that the discussions for the works on Purananooru are progressing, and more information regarding the cast and release date is anticipated in the next few days.

According to reports, the project is based on the Tamil Nadu movement against Hindi imposition in 1965. Nazriya Nazim will be portraying the lead female role.

Suriya reportedly left Purnanooru due to ‘creative differences’, but he had revealed in an interview that he parted from the project amicably, so there was no bitterness between the actor and Kongara.

Not wanting to shelve her high-profile project, Sudha Kongara reportedly talked to Sivakarthikeyan about replacing Dulquer Salman and approached Dhanush about taking Suriya’s place.
