Surya : My Favorite Actor

The star who was born and grown as Saravanan completing his degree in Commerce and graduated from Loyola College entered the tinsel town with a boy next door image in the year 1997. The hot and sizzling star from South India ‘Surya’ after making his debut in Nerrukku Ner opposite to Simran had a slow growth at the initial stages of his career. After a couple of films which dint do much well at the box office came back with a next hit film opposite Jyothika in the year 1999. And the movie which gave him recognition is ‘Nandha’ with director Bala. He is the one who shaped him as an actor. Anyone from Bala school is sure of becoming a superstar overnight. The same was the case with this shy boy. After which Mounam Pesiyadhe gave him another break. The biggest break was Khakha Khakha directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon. He enacted the role of an encounter specialist which wasn’t portrayed by anyone in Tamil cinema till then. He made heads turn with his great physique and his excellent on-screen chemistry with Jyothika. Followed by Pithamagan again directed by his mentor Bala, shared the screen space with his friend actor Vikram. This film won him the award for the best supporting actor because of his amazing sense of humor mixed with body language and witty comments. And performing the role of a student leader in Aayutha Ezhuthu made a revolution among the youth. The movie definitely had a very good social message. Ghajini with Murugadas won him the best actor award for that year. This was the film which inspired Aamir Khan to remake it in Hindi which was again a Blockbuster. The recent movie Varanam Aayiram which made him one of the most versatile actors in the Industry has got rave reviews. He made the girls go gaga over his body by showing his six-packs in this movie, and the latest movie Ayan has been breaking records with its collections.

Surya’s career graph has been slow but steady. Surya who is happily married to Jyothika considers Kamal Hassan as his inspiration and has been following his footsteps. He tries to play different roles in each and every movie. He does not stick to stereotype roles. The star couples have a daughter Diya who has been grabbing more attention than them. They also run an organization named ‘Agaram Foundations’ with the intent to abolish ill-literacy and to make sure that every kid gets proper education.

This actor ‘Surya’ as named by his mentor director Vasanth has definitely lived up to the expectations of his dad who is a veteran actor. He has been maintaining a clean image and has not been linked up with anyone else other than Jyothika to whom he is married. As his name symbolizes he is definitely the Supreme light in Tamil cinema. Hope he continues his good work with Agaram Foundations and gives more meaningful films. Wishing him all success in his future endeavors. Please nominate me for the Best of the Best Awards also known as BoB Awards.
