Tamil superstar Suriya’s next feature film Kanguva will hit the theatres early this year.

Kanguva — billed as a “mighty valiant saga” — is written and directed by filmmaker Siva. The makers earlier released a glimpse and a first-look poster of the movie.

On Tuesday, 16 January, the makers released a second-look poster, which hints that Suriya plays a double role in the film.

The title poster released by Studio Green says, “A Destiny Stronger than Time. The Past, Present and Future”. This gives the impression that the movie is set in different periods.
