Suriya’s upcoming film ‘Thaana Serndha Koottam’, directed by Vignesh Sivan, is said to be inspired by Bollywood blockbuster ‘Special 26’, which had Akshay Kumar in the lead.
“But necessary changes have been done to the script to suit the Tamil audience. For instance, ‘Special 26’ had no songs at all. But ‘TSK’ will have eight songs,” sources said.
Now, the story of ‘Special 26’: Based on real life incidents that occurred in India in 1987-88, the storyline revolves around a group of con artists who pulled off many clever robberies, and robbed famous businessmen and politicians by pretending to be the CBI or Income tax officers and conducting raids. On the pretext of conducting raids they would take away all the black money hoarded by them.
Studio Green’s Gnanavel Raja is producing ‘Thaana Serndha Koottam’, which has music by Anirudh. Keerthy Suresh, Ramya Krishnan, Senthil, Sathyan and Sivakumar play key roles.
