Suriyan was a major milestone in Sarath Kumar's career. This action packed movie had good songs by Deva and completed a silver jubilee at the box-office. Pavithran directed this film while Roja was the female lead.
Now there are talks to remake this movie in Tamil and Hindi. Vishal is being considered to reprise Sarath's role in Tamil while Sarath's daughter Varalakshmi might do Roja's role. This might be a big casting coup if it happens.
Pavithran plans to remake this movie while also making necessary changes according to the current trend. Official confirmation is awaited in this regard.
