Suriya, along with his family, left for the US on a holiday. The Vaaranam Aayiram actor will not be here in India for the release of his upcoming sci-fi thriller 24.
Suriya, Jyothika and their kids are expected to spend at least a couple of weeks in the Land of Liberty, which effectively means the actor will be able to enjoy the screening of his film there in the US.
"Suriya left on a holiday with his family on Saturday (April 30). During this trip he will also briefly promote his film in US, along with the film's overseas distributor CineGalaxy Inc," a source close to the star actor told IANS.
While 24 will release worldwide on May 6, the movie will have its premiere shows at many centres in the US on May 5th. Suriya is expected to attend the premiere of 24 in Bay Area, San Francisco.
Directed by Vikram Kumar, Suriya plays triple role in the film. Tipped to be a time-travel thriller, the film also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Nithya Menen in important roles.
Speaking at one of the recently held events, Vikram Kumar, who had previously directed movies like Silambarasan's Alai and Madhavan's Yavarum Nalam, praised Suriya the producer.
"We all know what Suriya is capable of as an actor, but it was Suriya the producer who impressed me the most while shooting for the movie '24'. The production team not only did make the entire team comfortable, but they made sure we were actually pampered on the sets of '24'", Vikram said.
He also said that Suriya is the kind of producer any director would love to work with.
"There is so much freedom on the set while working with him. Suriya never compromises on the quality of the film and that brought out the best from everyone," he said.
