24 is 2015-released Tamil science fiction thriller, which had talented actor Suriya in the lead role. The movie, which was directed by Vikram Kumar has been considered as one of the best time travel film ever made in Indian cinema.
Lead actor Suriya essayed triple roles in 24, as Sethuraman, Athreya, and Mani. The actor was widely appreciated for his exceptional performance in the movie, especially in the role of Athreya.
Let us see who would fit into the main characters of 24, if it is remade in Malayalam....
Prithviraj as Mani/Sethuraman/Athreya
There is no better choice other than Prithviraj for the roles of Mani, the watch mechanic, genius scientist Sethuraman, and the devilish Athreya. We are sure that Prithvi can handle all the three roles with the same ease.
Keerthy Suresh as Sathya
Keerthy Suresh's super cute looks and charming screen presence make her the perfect choice for the role of Mani's love interest Sathya, played by Samantha in the original.
Nithya Menen as Priya
We really don't have to think of an actress other than Nithya Menen to play the role of Priya, the wife of Sethuraman and biological mother of Mani. Nithya can undoubtedly reprise her role, if the movie is remade in Malayalam.
Lena as Sathyabhama
Versatile actress Lena will be a good choice the role of Mani's foster mother Sathyabhama, played by Saranya in the original. The character demands an actress who can play both the youth and aged stages, and Lena will be able to play it to near perfection.
24, which marked third Tamil outing of director Vikram Kumar, was initially offered to National award winning actor Vikram. Popular actress Ileana D'cruz was roped in to play the role of Sathya.
But Vikram opted out of the project citing the creative differences with the director as the reason. Later, director Vikram Kumar officially announced that the project has been shelved and assured that he will relaunch the project with a new actor and team.
In 2014, actor Suriya decided to produce the project for his banner 2D Entertainment, and play the lead role. 24, which hit the theatres on May 5th, 2016 entered the 100-Crore club within just the first 18 days of its release.
