Suriya: I shy away sometimes from watching my own films


Suriya is a well known and versatile Tamil superstar. Suriya recently told that – “I sometimes shy away from watching my own films. There are times when I wait for 100 days to complete since the film’s release, and then I watch my film.”

Suriya says – “But when people give a lot of love to a film, then I accept it and think that maybe they are large-hearted and let go of my flaws. Then I say, ‘This is my favourite film now. I don’t see the errors now’. My wife (Jyothika) and brother (Karthi) are also actors, but are not like that. They are very confident with what they do. They like their work.”

Suriya further adds – “Sometimes I get very critical with my work. I feel like I have not given my best and I should push myself more. I am very strict with myself. I have been like this. It’s been more than 20 years now. I somehow feel that I should have done better.”

Talking about if he would ever like remake of his films. He says – “It’s like once you have done it, you don’t want to write your 10th or 12th exams again. You are done with it and you want to move on to the next one, something which is more fresh and exciting. It’s almost like that.”

Meanwhile, his 2020 release Soorarai Pottru is still winning hearts. Recently, cricketer Ajinkya Rahane shared that he “absolutely loved” the film and found Suriya’s work “brilliant”. The film is a fictionalised account of the life of G.R. Gopinath, founder of the low- cost airline ‘Air Deccan’.
