Speaking at the audio launch of 24 in Hyderabad, Samantha lauded the work of her co-star Suriya. “He has done three roles in the film. He used to do a lovely, beautiful romance scene in the morning and then take lunch break. He used to take a nap for two hours, sit for make-up and then get ready for the villain role to scare us. The same Suriya. One of the greatest performers. 24 is a film which can be done only by him. I don’t think anyone else can do this role. 24 is a complete Suriya film,” she said.
“Rahman sir gave me life with his album in my debut film Ye Maaya Chesave. It’s an honor to be standing in front on him. It’s an honor to work in a film composed by him,” said Samantha about AR Rahman.
