Samantha pairs Suriya for Vikram Kumar's 24
Samantha has been finalised as the heroine for yet another Tamil film - 24 - opposite Suriya.
To be acted and produced by Suriya, 24 is the upcoming Tamil Sci-fi thriller in Alai and Yavarum Nalam director Vikram K Kumar direction.
It is known that Vikram has the credits of wielding the megaphone for recent Telugu blockbuster Manam in his kitty. Latest we hear that the filmmaker has roped in his Manam actress Samantha to pair opposite Suriya in 24. Talks were on with her for quite some time and now, things have been finalised.
Suriya and Samantha have already shared the screen space in N Lingusamy directed Anjaan, which did not receive the desired box office report. It is to be seen if the duo acquire a hit atleast this time.
Talking about Samantha’s role, Vikram Kumar says, “Apart from the regular romancing the hero running around trees, Samantha has an admirable role in the movie. She will bring in a lot of laughter. The film has romance, action, thrills, emotions and the fun element between Suriya and Sam will be highly entertaining”.
Samantha will start shooting in a couple of months for 24. Sam is currently working on finishing 10 Endrathukulla with Vikram; she has also signed on for Dhanush's upcoming film.
AR Rahman has recently recorded a song for Suriya's 24, lyrics by Vairamuthu. Shooting of 24 kick starts in April, after Suriya completes Venkat Prabhu directing Masss with Nayantara.
