Glad my brother @Suriya_offl treads the ground of stars. In spite of gravity, which makes wings weak. We created angels and stars. Hence be proud brother to join the crowd of excellence.

In the meantime, other bigwigs from across the world have also been given the same opportunity. These include The Queen's Gambit fame Anya Taylor-Joy, Billie Eilish, Jamie Dornan, and Academy Award-winning actor Troy Kotsur to name a few.
Up next, Suriya will be working on filmmaker Vetrimaaran's directorial titled Vaadivaasal. The storyline of the film is inspired by CS Chellappa's Tamil book of the same name. It talks about the unique relationship between a Jalikattu Kalai, a fighting bull, and a common man.
He will further lead Bala's next, named Suriya41 for now. This actor and director combo has joined hands after a long time. The protagonist is likely to be seen in a double role in the flick. One of the characters will be a commoner, while the other role is likely to be a deaf and dumb person.
