If not for Karthik Subbaraj’s Iraivi, we would have underestimated the acting capability of SJ Suryah. Even though the film turned out to be a box-office dud, the film went on to earn Suryah great recognition as an actor.
Interestingly, Suryah was always interested in acting and that’s why he ended up donning the greasepaint in several of his own directorial projects. However, he has always been on the lookout for a path-breaking role and when it came his way through Iraivi, he made heads turn.
Busy with multiple acting projects including a project with Mahesh Babu and Ilaiyathalapathy Vijay, Suryah has also commenced work on young director Ashwin Saravanan’s next. Popular for making a terrific directorial debut with Maya, Ashwin is currently directing a romantic thriller with Suryah and Sshivada Nair. Suryah is excited to be working on the project, which is currently being shot in Chennai.
Although Suryah plays a negative role in Mahesh Babu’s project, as well as his next with Vijay, it’s not yet known whether he plays a similar role in this new project as well. For Murugadoss’s film with Mahesh Babu, it is already known that Suryah shed weight to build six-pack abs and even went clean-shaven.
