Director Vetrimaaran is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated directors in Tamil cinema. His stories have spoken volumes without any sugar-coated elements. His notable works have also been praised by audiences even from the global scale too.

Currently, Vetrimaaran is focused on Viduthalai's 2nd part featuring Soori and Vijay Sethupathi in key roles. It has also been said that the Asuran director is also planning schedules for his upcoming film Vaadivaasal. Now, in a recent development, it is being reported that the makers of Vaadivaasal are planning new changes in the upcoming action-thriller film.

Vaadivaasal makers to replace Suriya as the lead?

It has been reported that Vetrimaaran is planning to cast Soori in place of Suriya as he has worked with him before in Viduthalai Part 1 and 2. It is said that due to Suriya's heavy commitments with big projects, the actor does not have a proper schedule for shooting and Vetrimaaran is thinking of taking Vaadivaasal on floors in 2025. So, it could be possible that instead of Suriya, we may see Soori in the project.

Meanwhile, no official announcement has been made by the makers, in regards to such huge changes in the project. As for now, Vaadivaasal remains the most awaited project in the Tamil industry.
