Sources close to the Unit of Venkat Prabhu’s upcoming Suriya-Nayantara-Pranitha starrer Masss say that the film’s title might undergo a change in the coming days. This is Suriya’s first film with Venkat Prabhu, who had already directed his younger brother and actor Karthi in his 2013 film Biriyani.
Billed as a comic horror venture, Masss has been in the making for the past many months. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores the music of the film which has Parthiban, Premgi Amaren, Samuthirakani, Karunas, Sriman, Sanjay Bharathi and Riyaz Khan in its cast. It is informed that though the title is catchy enough, it might undergo a change as only films with pure Tamil titles qualify for exemption from entertainment tax.
Of late, horror films have become the order of the day in Kollywood. Suriya is said to have himself taken on the ‘avatar’ of a ghost in one of his roles in the film. Nayantara gets paired up opposite Suriya for the third time after Ghajini and Aadhavan while Pranitha gets her first film opposite him.
Venkat Pabhu is said to have presented the script in an admirable manner. He had already announced that the film would be hitting the screens on 01st May. With just under three weeks to go for the film’s release, it remains to be seen as to what title he settles with!
