Director A.R. Murugadoss's much awaited 7Am Arivu is fast progressing. Contrary to earlier reports that the film would feature Suriya in triple roles, source close to a film unit confirmed that the film will have Suriya in two avatars: one, as a circus artist and the other as a Buddhist monk in China. Shruti Haasan, the female lead, is playing the role of a scientist.
Suriya has performed all the circus acts himself without using a body double in any of the sequences. Besides his circus acts, the actor will also perform several innovative stunts in the film. A special trainer from Rajkamal Circus was appointed to teach him the jumps and other special items he performs in the movie. According to sources, Suriya is also planning to perform the circus stunts he has learnt during the 7Am Arivu music launch for his fans.
Suriya also did some homework to play the character of a monk at a monastery in China. Another major highlight of the film is the Harris-Murugadoss combo after the super hit Ghajini.
