If you think Suriya is a talented actor, Suriya hails director Selvaraghavan as a ‘phenomenal performer’. The actor said this during a chat with fans on Twitter, ahead of the release of his ‘NGK’.
“It’s very difficult to act like Selvaraghavan, he is a phenomenal performer and always tells me to come to the shooting spot unprepared. If I approach a scene with my twenty years acting experience, he would come up with a different idea and it would be seven times better than my version,” said Suriya.
Stating that he wanted to work with Selvaraghavan in the year 2000 itself but the project didn’t materialize due to various reasons, Suriya added: “After eighteen years, Selvarghavan came up with three interesting ideas. While discussing with our producers, we decided to lock ‘NGK’ as Selvaraghavan was so much involved with the protagonist—Nanda Gopalan Kumaran.”
According to Suriya, ‘NGK’ is about a middle-class youngster who enters into politics and the difficulties he undergoes in climbing up the ladder.
When Suresh Raina also asked Suriya to reveal his favorite CSK player, Suriya stated: “Maapla… this is how I address Raina. It’s quite surprising to know that you got time for participating in the chat. Well, you would also accept this, my favorite CSK player is Dhoni. I still remember how Raina himself came and talked to me at an event, will always cherish the picture we clicked together.”
On water conservation, Suriya said that people should spend water and understand the importance of conserving it in this dry summer season. “Let’s feed water to animals and birds. But at the same time, we should also efficiently use the water without wasting it”, he said.
