Suriya is the model hero of Kollywood. With his humble manner, soft-spoken approach and very versatile career in cinema, he has impressed and inspired the younger generation. Today is his birthday and TamilWire.net wishes him a very happy birthday!
Looking back, Suriya began his career in cinema through Naerukku Naer, a Mani Ratnam-Vasanth film. Starting his career as a romantic hero, Suriya made a successful transition to a six-pack abs action hero, maintaining the subtle balance between commercial and artistice elements in cinema.
His performance in Nandha, Pithamagan, Perazhagan, Mounam Pesiyadhe set a new standard for a hero and brought Suriya a special identity. Khaaka Khaaka is a gratifying combination of action and romance; Sillunu Oru Kadhal stands proof to how a hero can underplay his performance to suit the character on screen. Ghajini showcases his aggressive avatar. Vel is his dual role extravaganza. Vaaranam Aayiram is a sample of his seasoned performing capability. Ayan has taken him closer to action aficionados.
In addition to his appeal as an actor who always enthralls audiences with a variety of roles on screen, part of Suriya’s charisma comes from his star wife Jyotika. In fact, the public constantly bombard him with fond enquiries about his wife, little daughter Diya and his just-born son Dev. Together, the couple take part and contribute considerably to many charitable causes.
On the career front, Suriya is busy gearing up for his first ever Bollywood project Raktha Charitra (being made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi) with RGV. Back home, he is currently shooting for his upcoming film 7aum Arivu with Shruti Haasan, directed by A.R. Murugadoss.
All the best and a very happy birthday Suriya!
