Work hard to make your mark

Superstar of Southern films, Suriya may have received the national award for “Soorarai Potru” today, but there was a time when he had to work very hard to make his mark in this industry. Although he is associated with the film industry, he has struggled a lot. Suriya is the son of Tamil actor Shivakumar but he made his mark in the industry on his own.

Surya received the offer to work in films when she was around 20 years old. In 1995, he was offered the lead role in the movie ‘Asai’ but Suriya was not interested in the movies which is why he turned down the offer. Having no particular interest in the world of cinema, he begins to work in a sheet factory.

1000 was the first win
During the days when Surya worked in a clothing factory, he hid his identity from the people there that he was the son of actor Shivakumar. For about 8 months he worked in a textile factory and in exchange for working in this factory he received one thousand rupees per month.

Mani Ratnam’s film debut
In 1997 she was approached by director Vasanth’s film ‘Nerukku Ner’. The producer of this film was Mani Ratnam. Because of Mani Ratnam, he could not refuse for this film and he made his debut in the Southern Industry. After debuting, Suriya realized the importance of this industry. Then he worked hard to make a name for himself in Southern movies and came a long way. In an interview, he said: “In the first days, I had to face a lot of problems. Because of the lack of confidence, the fights and the dancing, I had a lot of trouble during movie scenes. During this time, my mentor Raghuvaran helped and explained how to make a difference with your father.

History of Soararai Potru
The film for which Suriya got the award was a huge success. Soorarai Pottru was released in 2020. People liked this movie a lot. The film tells the story of a young man who gives his life to achieve his dream.
