Mahesh Babu, who is busy promoting his upcoming release Brahmotsavam, revealed that, what is being reported in media is false regarding 24. If you recall, reports were afloat that it was Mahesh, who suggested Suriya for 24 as Vikram Kumar first offered it to the superstar. However, Mahesh trashed the reports and said that he did not recommend Suriya for the film, but it has gone to him, since the script needed him. "Though I loved the script, when Vikram narrated it to me, I couldn't somehow picture myself in the film. I knew it will be a good film", he said.
