If the buzz is to be believed, Makers of Mahesh Babu-AR Murugadoss film approached SJ Surya to play antagonist in the high-budget venture.
SJ Surya is quite popular in Telugu States because of his films 'Kushi', 'Nani' and 'Puli'. He became an actor few years ago with the sole aim of becoming a No.1 Hero. After attempting few solo hero films, He now decided to undergo a transition and signing films to play negative roles. As of now, SJ Surya is playing antagonist Karthik Subbaraj's flick 'Iraivi' starring Vijay Sethupathi.
