2018 did not start on a good note for Keerthy Suresh. Her Telugu movie Agnyaathavaasi with Pawan Kalyan did not do well at the box office. But in Tamil she has better luck with the Suriya starrer Thaanaa Serndha Koottam. Remake of the Hindi movie Special 26, this Lingusamy directorial was well received. She followed this with the Savitri biopic Mahanati in Telugu (Nadigaiyar Thilagam in Tamil). The movie won her rave reviews and her action prowess was praised by the audiences.
She is currently busy with as many as three Tamil films, and all three are big banner projects. She has Saamy 2 (to be read as Saamy Square) with Vikram, which is the sequel to the 2003 hit Saamy. She is also joining Vishal on the sequel of his 2005 hot Sandakozhi. She joins Thalapathy Vijay for his 62nd film. This is the second time that she is sharing screen space with the actor. The two acted togeher in the 2017 release Bairavaa.
