After Prakash Raj in Singam and a foreign actor in Singam 2, director Hari is on the lookout for a strong villain for S3, the third instalment in Singam series.
The buzz is that Hari is yet to finalise a strong villain to be pitted against Suriya and hence shoot is getting delayed.
Sources say Suriya and team will be leaving to Malaysia by last week of August for ten days schedule and with that major portions in the film will be completed. But before that an antagonist has to be freezed.
S3 also known as Singam 3 is a sequel to the 2013 film Singam II and the third film in the Singam series. The film stars Suriya, Anushka Shetty and Shruti Haasan.
Devi Sri Prasad was replaced by Harris Jayaraj as the music director for the film. Principal photography commenced on 7 January 2016 in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh and the film is expected to be released in theatres on 28 October 2016, with the festival of Deepavali falling on its opening weekend.
The film’s Tamil Nadu distribution rights were sold for a record-breaking ?410 million (US$6.1 million), according to reports.
