Nitya Menen To Star In 24

Nitya Menen, who was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s Ok Bangaram, has paired up with Suriya for the first time in the upcoming 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,” said a source close to the actress.

Reportedly, Suriya plays a dual role 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, and it the second time Nitya has teamed up with director Vikram. The duo earlier worked on the 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.     – IANS
