Director Vasanth, who introduced Suriya to the movies, has written a long letter praising Surya for his excellent performance in ‘Soorarai Pottru’. Responding to the compliment, actor Surya said, “I am the seed you have always sown,” and said, “Thank you very much, sir.”
Director Vasanth had earlier commented on Surya’s performance on his Twitter page with a letter:
‘This letter of appreciation is not for you … it is for Nedumaran’s diplomacy. You have given life to this film ! This is your climax, even though you have shown your acting in many films so far, after trying and learning by yourself a little bit after your introduction to the Tamil film industry through me! For now!!!
You have never acted like a Nedumaran diplomat, and you have lived with blood and flesh. Even the beginning of the first scene is okay. There is no smile on your face even after you finally win. That seriousness, that mania to achieve தெரிகிறது is visible in your eyes to the end. As flowers that smell like flowers. Your performance wins in every scene when Nedumaran loses in every scene. No matter how natural it is , really without exaggeration, you have brought a character to life so brilliantly. I’m proud of your success, and I’m wearing the director’s hat with confidence.
Who can be happier than I am, because I am so happy that I can not write that you are my seed, you are my virtue, I am so proud of you.’
