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.
As we earlier reported actor Suriya has confirmed that he will be joining director Vikram K Kumar of recent Telugu blockbuster ‘Manam’ for his next film in Kollywood.
Vikram K Kumar is not a dubutante in K-town but the filmmaker has forayed into film with Tamil movie Yaavarum Nalam featuring Madhavan, Neetu Chandra and others.
This untitled Vikram Kumar film will be produced under home banner of Suriya, 2D Entertainments. Suriya-Vikram K Kumar’s project will go on floors in 2015.
Meanwhile, Suriya’s Anjaan directed by Lingusamy with Samantha as the lady lead is gearing up for release on Aug 15 [Independence Day]. He is currently shooting for Venkat Prabhu directing Masss for Studio Green. Nayanthara and Amy Jackson are pairing opposite Suriya in Masss.
Surya is all set to work on Venkat Prabhu’s next supposedly titled Poochandi this month. But it looks like the talented actor is already keen on his next project and has apparently met director Vikram Kumar of 13B fame recently for a story discussion. Vikram Kumar’s last film ‘Manam’ in Tollywood was declared hit at the box-office.
“Vikram recently met Surya and narrated the script. He liked it and agreed to work on it after he completes Venkat Prabhu’s film,” says a source. When asked about Pandiraj’s untitled film, Surya says, “I liked Pandiraj’s idea and wanted to produce it. I am yet to take a call about acting in it. It’s too early to say anything now.”
