Till now, the makers had been keeping the baddie of Singam 3 in a much hidden state and it is all revealed openly that the country’s most fascinating bodybuilding champion Thakur Anoop Singh has been signed to play the baddie opposite Suriya in the third instalment of this franchise. The film is directed by Hari and this is the fifth time both Hari and Suriya are coming together following the grand success of Aaru, Velu, Singam and Singam 2. The film features Anushka Shetty in female lead role alongside Shruthi Haasan and has musical score by Harris Jayaraj.
The makers have canned all the sequences, except the ones involving Suriya and Thakur and the shooting for both of them have already commenced in Chennai. It seems that initially, the makers were keen on bringing in some prominent Hollywood actor for the negative character, but finally managed to bring him in for this spectacular physique and global fame.
Soon after completing the Chennai schedule, the entire team will shoot a scintillating mind-boggling action sequence involving Suriya and Thakur Anoop Singh in an exotic foreign country locale. The film is getting ready for release either in December or Pongal 2017.
