It is said that considerable gap would be left between release in theatres of Suriya’s upcoming films 24 and S3 directed by Vikram Kumar of Yaavarum Nalam fame and Hari (respectively in that order).
Starring Suriya, Nithya Menen and Samantha in the lead, 24 has music by A.R. Rahman. As brings together Suriya and A.R. Rahman after more than a decade and is also the comeback film of Vikram Kumar, it has generated huge expectations among Suriya’s fans who are hoping that their star w(sh)ould get it right this time at the box office after faltering on earlier two occasions with Anjaan and Maasu Engira Masilamani.
Crew of S3 (third film in the Singam sequel) featuring Suriya, Shruti Haasan and Anushka are said to be planning to release the film during Ayudha Pooja holidays in October when the entire State would be having 5 holidays in a row as they plan to take full advantage of the festive spirit and the moods of the audiences. The crew is presently shooting in Rumania.
Thus, 24 whose teaser has been receiving record number of hits and whose pre-release posters have elicited huge response from audiences and Suriya’s fans, would release first in theatres preferably on Tamil New Year day on 14th April, taking on Atlee’s Vijay-starrer Theri.
