Suriya Sivakumar: Top 10 South Indian Heroes

Suriya sivakumar

Most reviews say Suriya Sivakumar is a’real and spontaneous’ actor who can play any part. After Tamil movies abandoned morals and darkness, he got popular.

Ghajini proved that audiences could handle negativity. A.R. Murugadoss anticipated Suriya’s Ghajini part would appeal to popular audiences and was almost right. This actor overcame his father’s shadow to become one of the most talented, inspiring Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgan.

Aamir Khan wants to remake Ghajini in Hindi after praising his performance. Suriya downplayed Aamir’s overacting in the Hindi version. Suriya never appeared in a Hindi film (save Ram Gopal Varma’s Rakht Charitra), yet his name became prominent in Hindi belt due of Ghajini. Ajay Devgan modelled Singham after Suriya’s police character.

Suriya’s record reveals he resisted typecasting and proved his films were “all Suriya.” Suriya has earned the title “dashing star” Mani Ratnam dubbed him Suriya. This actor avoided the camera and never wanted to be an actor. In early roles with Vikram and Vijay, he stole the show. Fans and journalists praised Suriya for playing the first dual role on screen in Perazhagan.
