The latest buzz is that Suriya will work again with director Vikram Kumar in whose company he gave the critically acclaimed 24 four years ago.
The director has opened up about his comeback in Tamil cinema in a recent interview with a daily, spilling beans on his plans to team up again with Suriya. Suriya is also interested in collaborating with the director and is said to have already heard the narration.
The director has reportedly confirmed a part two for the film, though he did not reveal if it would be a sequel or a prequel. The director also added that they decided about the second part when the film was being shot.
A web portal quoted the director as saying, “While we were shooting for 24, Suriya sir told me that I should come up with the story for a second part. He told this during the last schedule of 24.
But what both of us decided was, we shouldn’t do the second part, just for the sake of it. It has to have a very strong story and screenplay like 24. That process is going on now. Multiple drafts have been written, but I’m not satisfied with what I’ve written.”
Suriya is currently awaiting the release of his next film ‘Soorarai Pottru’, which is directed by Sudha Kongara. The film received a U certificate from the censor board and is set to release on a suitable date. Suriya has also signed his next films with directors Hari and Vetrimaaran respectively.
