Finally, the heroine for Suriya’s next film Thaana Serndha Koottam, directed by Vignesh Sivan of Naanum Rowdy Dhaan fame, has been finalised.
She is none other than Keerthy Suresh, who has been riding high on a success wave in Kollywood. “Welcome Keerthy Suresh. Our Kootam is delighted to have you on board,” said production house Studio Green on its Twitter page.
Thaana Serndha Kootam is expected to go on floor in the first week of November. The film is said to be the remake of popular Hindi film Special 26.
Incidentally, Keerthy is celebrating her birthday today. The daughter of producer Suresh Kumar and actress Menaka, Keerthy made her debut as a child actress in the early 2000s and, after graduating in fashion design, she returned to do lead roles.
She played her first lead role in the 2013 Malayalam film Geethaanjali and has signed up films in Tamil and Telugu films as well.
In 2014, she accepted her first projects outside of Malayalam and signed on to appear in several Tamil film projects simultaneously. Her first film release was A. L. Vijay’s romantic comedy Idhu Enna Maayam (2015) opposite Vikram Prabhu, though the film did not perform well at the box office
