Suriya Sivakumar is a name that needs no introduction because he makes sure that everyone knows him for his excellent work and incredible acting skills. He has worked in the Tamil cinema business since 1997 and is regarded as one of the best performers in India, not just in South or Kollywood. His filmography is a powerful testament to his commitment, enthusiasm, and compassion. Suriya is one of the select few performers who, whether playing a lawyer fighting for justice in Jai Bhim or an amnesiac lover boy in Ghajini, manages to move spectators with practically every performance.
For his depiction of Nedumaaran in Soorarai Pottru, the much-loved actor received the Best Actor National Award. He shared the honour with Ajay Devgn, another accomplished actor. It made Suriya extremely happy, and he shared a touching statement he had written in response to receiving the prize on Instagram. He thanked all the technicians and congratulated all the winners in the letter. He complimented Ajay Devgn on the shared success and hailed Mani Ratnam, the filmmaker who gave him his big start. The Jai Bhim actor praised the Indian government, the jury, and his wife Jyotika for pushing him to participate in Soorarai Pottru. He also thanked his followers for their unwavering support.

Not once, but twice, Suriya was able to capture the interest of audiences and journalists throughout the world. Despite the language barrier and lack of comprehension, films like Jai Bhim and Soorarai Pottru were so successful with international audiences that the Oscars recognised them. Even though neither of the films could go to the finals, the influence they had on many people was greater than any notable victory. Like them, it is a significant accomplishment if you can make even a modest difference in this world.
