Surya 24 Tamil Movie

The makers of Suriya-starrer Tamil science-fiction thriller “24” shot a few scenes at a popular cricket stadium here that used to be the home turf for Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Pune Warriors before it was dismissed from the cricket tournament.

“The team shot a couple of sequences in Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune. They wrapped up the shoot in a single day and are currently filming the last schedule of the film,” a source from the film’s unit told.

Also starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen in the lead roles, the film is being directed by Vikram Kumar.

Tipped to be a film high on computer graphics, the post-production work will reportedly take about two months and the work will start from November.

Produced by Suriya, the film has music by A.R. Rahman.

Nitya Menen, who was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s “O Kadhal Kanmani”, has paired up with actor Suriya for the first time in upcoming Tamil thriller “24”, which also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu.

“Nitya has been roped in for an important role. She’s currently shooting for the project in Mumbai,” a source close to the actress told.

Reportedly, Suriya plays dual roles in the film and it’s quite possible that Nitya may be one of the leading ladies.

Being directed by Vikram Kumar, the film is said to be a racy thriller laced with time travel elements.

This is the second time Nitya has teamed up with director Vikram. The duo has earlier worked in Telugu blockbuster “Ishq”.

Double Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman will score the music for the film, which also features veteran actor Girish Karnad in an important role.
