Director Siva is teaming up with Suriya for the first time on Suriya 42.

The team, in September 2022, announced that the yet untitled film will be shot in 3D and released in 10 languages, thereby making it a pan-world film.

The film is said to feature disha patani as the female lead and is essentially a reincarnation-based action adventure.

While a major chunk of the shoot is already said to be wrapped up, the next schedule of the yet-untitled film will begin in the first week of January 2023.

The film is expected to be wrapped by March 2023.

Now, it is learnt that leading Hindi film producer, Dr Jayantilal Gada, has acquired the Hindi rights of this much-awaited reincarnation action adventure for a near-record price.

An industry source shared: “Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios) has acquired the Hindi rights of Suriya 42 for a sum of Rs 100 crore.

“The makers are leaving no stone unturned to make a massive reincarnation-based action adventure, set in past and present, which appeals to audiences all across, and have found their ideal partner in Jayantilal Gada.”

The source further said that Pen Studios has acquired the satellite, digital and theatrical rights for the Hindi version of the film:
