Samantha plays Suriya’s heroine in his upcoming thriller 24 which is directed by Vikram Kumar, director of super-duper hit films such as the Tamil film Yaavarum Nalam and the Telugu film Manam.
The film has music by A.R. Rahman, who gets to score for a Suriya-starrer after a long time. The shoot of the film was wrapped up recently and the crew is now busy with the post-production work including dubbing and background score. In all probability, 24 will release in theatres during summer.
Samantha and A.R. Rahman, who are part of the film, have an unique connection with the number ‘24’, which is incidentally the film’s title as well. Rahman, who debuted as music director in 1992 with ace director Mani Ratnam’s Roja, completes 24 years as music director in the year 2016 when 24 releases in theatres.
For Samantha, who debuted as an actress in Tamil with a small role in Gautham Menon’s Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, 24 happens to be the 24th film in her career. The unique connection for both Samantha and Rahman with 24 has surprised the Unit folks!
